A lovely place, I wish we had more time to spend there. So much to see inside, it is hard to take it all in! This is certainly a must see while in Montreal.

Beautiful experience and very humbling of what history has built. Had to wait in line, but moved quickly.

A must-see if you are visiting Montreàl! The line is long and unexpected weddings can upset your plans, but it is well worth the trip.

An absolutely gorgeous basilica, with a gorgeous alter and beautiful stained glass windows. One of the nicer churches in the city.

We have visited many, many churches across Europe and south America. This one is probably the most beautiful of all. Strikingly designed and unusual colors and lighting.

Huge lines so you can pay to walk in and look around. It's truly lovely but so weird to see people in a church jockeying for best position to take selfies. Kinda weirded me out. If you're really into seeing churches, it's definitely a beautiful...More

For the Aura show it seems advisable. Very long line 20 minutes before opening. Saw people being turned away because it was sold out.
