See the jewel of Canada's religious heritage at Notre-Dame Basilica, one of the world's most dramatic examples of Gothic Revival architecture. The majestic church boasts hundreds of intricately carved wooden statues in a grand interior that holds up to 4,000 worshippers--all under a blue ceiling speckled with gold stars. Instead of depicting religious scenes, the stained glass windows narrate the history of Montreal and offer a glimpse into the city's development over the centuries. The church regularly hosts musical events, with the main concert taking place at Christmas, when thousands attend the performance of Handel's "Messiah." With our international travel planner, Montreal attractions like Notre-Dame Basilica can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

Gorgeous church. 8$ entry fee for adults but worth it so much to see. Architecture is exquisite. Paintings and statues are amazing. Stained glasses windows are lovely. This church is a perfect place for someone who is a person of faith, or someone who loves amazing architectural design. You will not be disappointed.
Such a beautiful old church. The architecture is amazing. Its stained glass windows and beautiful wood carvings will leave you breathless. The frescoes are a wonder. The alter is so ornate and detailed. My wife and I visit everytime we are in Montreal to light candles for our loved ones who have passed on.
