This Basilica is breathtaking in itself. Do NOT miss the Aura light show -$23 dollars and sells out very quickly. The show is absolutely mesmerizing- I am left speechless

I gasped when I walked in and first saw the altar, it was spectacular. The 20 minute tour was nostly all verbal but informative. Definitely worth a visit.

No words can describe how stunning it is. So much detail in the woodwork, and stained glass. A must see.

Very nice tour of the cathedral (French or English) came with the nominal entrance fee. This place is such a landmark.

This is easily one of the nicest churches I've ever been to. The work that went into building and maintaining this church must be unbelievable. It was $6pp to get in and well worth it IMO.

The light show was well worth it. A must see if you are in Montreal. You will not be disappointed. Book in advance as it sells out pretty quickly.
