We have been fortunate to visit churches all over the world and we have never seen an interior as beautiful as this one. The cost to enter ($6) is a bit steep, but I wouldn't have missed it. Try to get a guided tour We...More

You can take a tour but we went to mass, which was in french and then wandered around until the next service. They have a evening light show but we did not see it

Beautiful and impressive historic Basilica. The cost of your visit is 6CD but it worth every sent. The church is located very close to the old port and to Chinatown so you can combine the church visit with the rest of the sites.

Beautiful historic church. Worth the $6 entry fee. Be sure to bring Canadian cash as they don't accept credit cards.

Visited the Notre-Dame Basilica twice during the same day. First we went in the morning and followed the tour guide and listen to her introduction. Then in the afternoon we went there again and listened to the organ play. It was very nice.

Definitely worth a visit. The Basilica is absolutely gorgeous. If you are in the Old Port region you cannot miss it.

Take the guided tour. It's included in the small admission price and worth listening to. You shouldn't miss this.

Keeping in mind that this is a church and not Legoland, there is nothing to keep small kids occupied while parents look around. If they are kids that will sit in a stroller for a while, with a book, or an ipad (on mute) or... More

Yes. You do have to pay (about $6) but it is well worth it.
