Museum in the church is extremely interesting. You get a unique insight into the nature of the early French settlement.

The sailor's church is well worth the visit, with its boat shaped chandeliers and museum on Marguerite Bourgeois, Montreal first saint. The best, however is the roof access which provides for an awesome view of the port of Montreal.

This place costed only $6 to enter and it was stunning. The interior was mesmerizing! It's my favorite place in Montreal

Overlooking the port, the church has great external architecture. Inside it's a lot smaller than the Basilica but it has a really nice peaceful feel to it. Entry is free (please give a donation on the way out), or you can pay to visit the...More

The history lesson alone makes this visit worthwhile. The extra $5 to climb the many stairs to the tower is money well spent. What a fantastic view!

This is a very interesting church to visit in Old Montreal. What I thought would be a quick 30 minute visit turned into us staying there for about two hours. The visit can best be described broken down into a few parts: The Church -...More

Beautiful stained glass windows and lots of history here. We enjoyed it so much we paid an entrance fee to climb the tower stairs (very narrow and winding so hold onto the railings) but even though it was raining that day the view was really...More

This is a small beautiful ornate church with lovely stained glass windows and many other things to admire. We popped in here as part of the Old Montreal Walking tour. A real must see.

This is quite a spiritual and beautiful chapel. There is no admission price but they do accept donations. The art work is breathtaking.

The Chapel is all that you can imagine and more. History fans and architecture lovers will be in the right place here. It's located in the center of Old Montreal and a couple of blocks away from the Old Port. A must visit place.

Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic centre of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to
some of the city's most antiquated buildings and
picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St.
Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums,
festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a
celebrated part of the city that explodes into
fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its
centre, street performers and artists compete with

What hotel would be within walking distance of Notre Dame? How far is the train station from the hotel? We are spending one night in Montreal and want to capitalize on our time.

That depends upon your budget. As the other reviewer said, there are many small, reasonably priced hotels (auberges) in Place Jacques Cartier; or you can walk maybe 1/4 mile to upscale hotels on Rue Dorchester, on the... More

We spent a couple hours there. The only guided tour portion we took was the archaeological dig, since you cNt see that on your own. Nice audio guide for the museum.
I ask potential visitors to recognize that the Chapel of Notre Dame de Bon Secours is not the same place as the Notre Dame Basilica. I believe some of the reviews here should be on the page for Notre Dame Basilica. Both are worth visiting but the scale and history are different. .
