Notre-Dame's twin towers have served as an Old Montreal landmark since the Neo-Gothic basilica was finished in 1829. Today they continue to be the focal point, where tourists disgorge from buses and calèche drivers line up for passengers. The interior glows with gilded statuary and gold-leafed fleurs de lys, and is home to one of the largest pipe organs in the world. The Montreal Symphony Orchestra performs its Christmas production of Messiah here at the Basilique Notre-Dame de Montreal or the Notre-Dame Basilica.
If you feel that it is imoral to charge $4.00 to visit, then do not pay the $4.00. Wait until Saturday Eve or Sunday and go to Mass. It will be the most beautiful Mass you have ever attended. What a wonderful place and a wonderful City. My wife and i can not wait to go back.
The Basilica is beautiful! And they offer tours that are interesting, informative, and reasonably priced. There's a great gift shop. There are masses and light shows that sound awesome. It's also located in an nice area where you can get horse and carriage rides.
very pretty church and it's the best church ever in the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and very colorful from inside the church.It's been wonderful to hear what is the church is about. It's peace that you enter from the church.
Doesn't anyone think that charging $4.00 to enter God's house is immoral? Doesn't anyone think that it's immoral to turn a house of worship into a carnival style tourist attraction? Does anyone remember that our Lord whipped and chastised the money changers at the temple? Is there such a thing as a Catholic in Canada anymore? If you pay and enter into this disgrace you are just as big a sinner as the fools who have perverted this church. Don't go!
It was the most beautiful sight to see. We were there for my daughters best friends wedding in July 2005. She was married in the Church and we left the church to the ringing of the bells. I have never felt what I felt that afternoon in July. Everyone needs to feel the experience.
I would highly recommend to anyone traveling through Montreal to take the time to see the beautiful sight.
It was so beautiful inside and out. The architecture and artwork is quite remarkable. It was a moving and joyous visit for my daughters and I.
We went to Notre Dame right after Pope John Paul passed away, so the church had changed decoration and lighting to reflect the mourning of his passing. This was not only breathtaking, but very humbling. This was definately worth the trip!
This church, designed by Quebec architect Victor Bourgeau and built between 1870 and 1894, is an exact one third replica
of St Peter's Basilica in Rome. Set among the bleak skyscrapers of downtown, it makes a particularly striking sight. ...
Climbing the 387 steps to the top of this masterpiece is well worth the effort for the spectacular view. Construction
