Cathedrals and Basilicas

Located in picturesque Old Montréal, Notre-Dame Basilica is just one of the city's must-see attractions. The city’s oldest church was built in 1656 and features a spectacular interior reminiscent of the grandest basilicas in Rome. The interior decor of the church is stunning, with its richly coloured stained glass windows depicting the city’s religious history, and the spectacular statues and works of art throughout. The dazzling “And Then There Was Light" sound and light show illuminates the altar and tells the story of the birth of Montréal and Notre-Dame Basilica. Other noteworthy religious sites in Montréal include the copper-domed St. Joseph’s Oratory, the Cathedral of Marie-Reine-du-Monde which was designed to resemble St. Peter’s Church in Rome, and the tiny Our Lady of Lourdes Chapel with its intricate architecture.
