There was so much to see inside the Basilica. The price for admittance is reasonable and there are free guided tours in both languages.

Well worth the entry fee to see the interior of this church. It looks so old but is, in terms of U.K. churches, quite young! Painting and carving is beautiful and the lighting shows it to great effect.

Walking the cobblestone streets of Old Montreal transports me back to France. Wonderful ambiance, food and cultural treasures to explore. Notre Dame is the highlight of the old part of this great city.

This church offers a light show and a music recital. Both of which are worth attending. The colours within the church are amazing - very unlike English churches at home.
