See the jewel of Canada's religious heritage at Notre-Dame Basilica, one of the world's most dramatic examples of Gothic Revival architecture. The majestic church boasts hundreds of intricately carved wooden statues in a grand interior that holds up to 4,000 worshippers--all under a blue ceiling speckled with gold stars. Instead of depicting religious scenes, the stained glass windows narrate the history of Montreal and offer a glimpse into the city's development over the centuries. The church regularly hosts musical events, with the main concert taking place at Christmas, when thousands attend the performance of Handel's "Messiah." With our international travel planner, Montreal attractions like Notre-Dame Basilica can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • If you are planning to visit this beautiful church then make sure to buy tickets online from their website. Same day tickets are almost impossible to get. Buy tickets online and you will receive a QR code in email for individual tickets. Make sure to carry your proof of vaccination and one ID with you. They will check at entrance. Tickets will be checked inside. It's a must visit place and most beautiful church I have ever seen. Enjoy!!!
  • Open from 7 to 830 morning and from 12 to 130 afternoon
