“A must see!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

The architecture and design of the entire cathedral was magnificent. Seeing it was well worth the small donation that is mandatory for entrance.

“They've added a light and sound show”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

The show explains a history of Montreal's main parish from a tiny log chapel to the present day. Not a masterpiece, but a good entertainment and well worth the admission price.

“Inside is ornate and beautiful.”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

Inside is ornate and beautiful. Tour is excellent. Masses are in French. Sound and light show at night is good, not great, but worth the $10.

“Beautiful Cathedral”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

If you have any appreciation for art and beauty (religious or otherwise), this is a can't miss stop while walking through Old Montreal. There is a small required donation to enter, but it is well worth it to see the amazing architecture and design. Another reviewer mentioned a good tip - be sure to walk through the main cathedral to see the new chapel behind - an attractive addition worth checking out.

“Surprise”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

You have to pay, and it looks grim from the outside. But the inside was both beautiful and a surprise. Do not miss the new chapel on the back.
