The basilica shares an intimate legend with her architect. Irish-American James O’Donnel, who designed the building from the ground up, was so overcome by his own creation that he decided to convert to Catholicism on his deathbed, and was granted the privilege of being the sole person to be buried in it’s crypt. It’s Gothic Revival Architecture is said to be one of the most dramatic in the world.

  • Worth the visit if you have time has a Beautiful exterior not that impressed by the interior. Don’t get me wrong it’s beautiful but it’s all wooden inside and just wasn’t that overly impressive but it was still Beautiful. The prayer rooms where nicely appointed. The overall interior scale is impressive with its large seating capacity. It’s better then most Canadian churches but Falls short of European churches.

  • So beautiful. If I had to pick only one attraction as a 'must see' in Montreal, this basilica would probably be it. The interior is unique with its brilliant blues and tributes to Quebecois history & culture. Celine Dion was married here; it's fairly lavish. 7000 pipe organ-- try to see a performance or ceremony!

  • These church surprised me. It's really beautiful inside. As a tourist you may pay to get inside. Fair enough. At least you are allowed to take as many pictures as you want. A tour guide is also included. Fun and informative. And the church is really beautiful inside, I must repeat.

  • Beautiful beautiful beautiful and absolutely worth going to. The guided tour was interesting, and you're free to walk away whenever you want. It's only 20 minutes and I think hearing the information heightened my appreciation. I wish I had been able to stay to hear the organ being played at night. It looks like a monster (apparently it has over 7,000 pipes)! Of course the architecture and stained glass is beautiful, but really stop and take the time to appreciate the intricate details of, well, everything!

  • Saw the Aura show. The first half of the presentation is quite nice. You're free to walk around the church (which is impressive in its own right) and admire visual presentations in some of the knaves. The main, event, on the other hand, is beautiful, breathtaking and inspiring. Spectacular. I wholeheartedly recommend that everyone see it before it ends.
