Notre-dame Basilica - Review
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. It’s panels of stained glass are contrary to traditional ones; they depic scenes of Montreal’s religious history rather than biblical scenes.

Notre-dame Basilica, Montreal Reviews
Note-Dame Basilica in Montreal , Canada is a beautiful Basilica in the city of Montreal. Seeing is believing and you have to see it believe the splendor of the structure. The different departments of the Basilica are very neatly maintained and you have to be very careful not to miss any details. The altar is beautifully arranged with suitable lighting for our viewing. As you enter the Basilica you can feel the sacred feeling which comes into yourself. Will like to visit in my next visit to the city of Montreal.
Beautiful architecture on the outside. It's even more striking on the inside. They only take cash at the ticket counter so please make sure you have it on you. The ticket is good for an entire day so hold onto it in case you want to come back again. That's what I did. The guide was great. She was engaging in her stories. I came back later in the day to listen to the organ. That was also a great experience.
If you’re in Montreal, it’s worth a visit to this cathedral. I went for the light show and was not disappointed. Actually, it’s more of a multimedia show with projection and sound. The building is very impressive both outside and inside. As part of the show, you get to walk around inside before it starts and take in the architecture and art. The show itself is quite mesmerizing and very enjoyable. It is a “must see.”
This is a lovely, working Catholic Church in the heart of Old Montreal. Very reasonably priced to visit, as compared to some European cathedrals which are expensive and do not allow photos. The guides were pleasant and well informed. It always amazes me that places like this which are ‘tourist destinations’ are also the locals parish church. People attend services and worship like we do everywhere else! I really enjoyed the detailed craftsmanship down to the carvings of the apostles in the pews. Beautiful!!
To be honest it was packed And I little pricey to get in. I had accidentally reviewed the basilica in Quebec City thinking it was for this one. They are cash only do make sure you have cash on you to pay for entrance. They raved on the size of the organ and the pipes but we are from Salt Lake City where the pipes in our tabernacle are quite big and the our conference. Enter are big. It is beautiful inside and dark at the same time. I just couldn’t get over how many people were there. We had a hard time finding parking so it was a really quick trip in because our parking meter was going to expire. I would go again, it is one of those must see places.
