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.

I loved this place. Definitely a beautiful and well kept piece of history. I have never seen a church look even half as nice as this one. Would definitely recommend this place to those who love sightseeing and history. Very cheap to get it, I believe it was only $5 but might be more depending on events and seasons. They allow you to take pictures inside. Worth the trip.
This place is magnificent. Yes, it is a church but the architecture and it’s beauty has no words. We took an English tour and they give you a background of the church, when and how it was built. Try taking a tour if you are visiting this place. The fees is very nominal and I think it’s worth every penny. You can pray or you can enjoy the holy view. I would go here again and again if I am in Montreal.
Extremely intricate and beautiful designs. I was in the basilica between 3-4 pm in winter so the interior is a bit dark and the stained glass did not look it’s best. Nevertheless it was breathtakingly beautiful. The design doesn’t make it stand out that much more than some other basilicas in the city such as the Saint Patrick’s Basilica, but the guided tour definitely made it worth the $6 entry fee. I would highly recommend staying for the guided tour since otherwise you can go see other churches for free. Also the chapel in the back is magnificent, there’s no pictures allowed in there, so it’s an incentive to go see it for yourselves I guess.
It's such a beautiful cathedral. I bet you will feel like spending more time at this place. I saw the possibility of having a horse carriage ride outside the cathedral. A beautiful location to get some great pictures as your Montreal trip memories. During Christmas they have some Christmas walks-but be sure to check out the timings. Entry fee is 6CAD and they only accept cash. No cards accepted
One of the prettiest churches in Montreal. The atmosphere inside is serene. It is located Downtown, which makes it convenient to travel to. The only issue I had was with the $6 entry fee, which had to be paid in cash (no credit/debit card option) which was a bit annoying. But other than that, beautiful church.
