Visiting the Notre Dame was the most beautiful experience in Montreal. The minute you walk in, you could feel the ambience, peaceful and magical. The history the miracles, the views, the organ. A MUST SEE

The basilica was just beautiful. It's totally worth the price of admission to the see the inside. I would also recommend stopping by to see the basilica both in daylight and at night.

The Basilica is beautiful. A must see whether or not you are religious. I just didn't know where to look, everywhere you looked was more stunning than the last.

A must see right in the heart of old Montreal. A short walk to Chinatown afterwards. Near the water and many art galleries.

This church is amazing. Absolutely stunning. The 11am mass was all in French but still worth doing even though we only speak English. Would highly recommend going inside as it rivals some of the best churches in the World.
