“What a church - GO INSIDE!!”
Reviewed 31 August 2014

I have seen many churches and I have to say this one didn‘t impress me too much from the outside. It looks impressive and huge don‘t get me wrong but I like churches with more love to detail...BUT, and here is where the story turns, we did spend the 5 dollars to go inside and yes it was worth it I would say. The church is stunning. Blue and gold are the two main colours of the design inside (View the pictures I uploaded). What I missed to see on the outside of the church was definitely overdone on the inside. I love when there is just so much to look at.
Even though I am not very religious I still had a great time enjoying the designs and architecture.

“Sure was beautiful but...”
Reviewed 31 August 2014

Was across from our hotel so we visited. Was beautiful as you'd expect a cathedral of this scale to be. Is about a ten minute interior walk-around to absurd all the history and architecture. Wouldn't go out of your way to see it.

A absolutely beautiful spectacle with the lovely blue lighting at the altar. The small fee for visiting is for the restoration and was gladly paid.

“a must see in montreal”
Reviewed 29 August 2014

this church is a must see in montreal. this is a beautiful sight, and it is free, unless you want to go in the museum. we didn't because it was raining and we were running back to our hotel. that whole neighborhood is really cool, right outside the basilica. i't like being in either france or italy.
