I have no words. We have old churches in Boston as well but the organ and the show coupled with the atmosphere of the old town of Montreal is just a wow.

A beautiful church located in the old town of Montreal and its definately worth a visit. Please note that tickets for entry can only be paid for in cash.
There were two guided tours the day we were there, one in French before noon and one after noon in English. So its a good idea to look up the times for the daily tours if you want to join them.

Linda K. We held off visiting the Basilica until the end of our visit, and it was truly an unexpected vision walking in and seeing the glorious altar, the transcendent lighting and the architectural marvel of this church. There is a light show, which we did not have time to stay for, but was mentioned to us over and over as "spectacular". Truly an awesome place!

It is beautiful. Best place in Montreal to visit. We went for easter and the mass during this easter celebration was gorgeous.
