“one of the crown jewels of Quebec”

Notre-Dame Basilica is a basilica in the historic district of Old Montreal, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The church is located at 110 Notre-Dame Street West, at the corner of Saint Sulpice Street. It is located next to the Saint-Sulpice Seminary and faces the Place d'Armes square. The church's Gothic Revival architecture is among the most dramatic in the world; its interior is grand and colourful, its ceiling is coloured deep blue and decorated with golden stars, and the rest of the sanctuary is a polychrome of blues, azures, reds, purples, silver, and gold. It is filled with hundreds of intricate wooden carvings and several religious statues. Unusual for a church, the stained glass windows along the walls of the sanctuary do not depict biblical scenes, but rather scenes from the religious history of Montreal. It also has a Casavant Frères pipe organ, dated 1891, which comprises four keyboards, 92 stops using electropneumatic action and an adjustable combination system, 7000 individual pipes and a pedal board

There is a $6 Canadian fee for each adult . It is a beautiful church and it’s location in Old Town makes it a lovely part of the Montreal experience. Due to its location, it may be difficult finding parking if you drive.

Gorgeous. Sad we didn’t do the night show inside but I just couldn’t justify $50 for a couple to go. They only take cash.

I liked the show, when the curtains drop and you've never seen the interior, it's really something beautiful!!!
