Absolutely gorgeous. A little strange to pay to see a church (they make a fortune from the thousands of tourists and I hope that they do good with the money), but it is worth seeing. Spend 15 minutes, check it out and take some pictures....More

It tells the history of the city on its glass windows. It hosted the wedding of Celine Dion and Rene Angelil and the funerals of Prime Minister Pierre E. Trudeau

A must see in Montreal. Not expensive. You can just view by yourself or have a short 20 minute guide to tell you the interesting facts about the building. Beautiful inside. We were lucky to be able to reuse our ticket in the afternoon to...More

Great place to see a true euro style church that is full of history and religious art. Really one of Montreal's 'must See' sites.
