  • I have lived in Montréal for 9 years and it's the first time that l have been in this cathedral and I must admit it's so beautiful. It's much nicer than the notre dame bascilla and not so crowded also...  more »
  • For those who have had the pleasure of visiting the stratospheric and charming Saint Peter's basilica in Rome ... here you'll find a photo thumbnail. We didn't find that too and being around Rome we took a hike to get there but it was worth it. The altar is a miniature of St. Peter ... Let's say I looked we were in our homeland. Recommended.

  • A very tucked building. The paintings on the ceiling have me very impressed. The Church is worth a visit.

Where to stay in Montreal

If beautiful architecture and views over the water appeal, stay in the historic neighborhood of Vieux Montreal (Old Montreal), where you'll be a stone's throw from the best attractions in the city. If modern convenience is more important to you, look for accommodations in the downtown neighborhood of Centre-Ville, or head a bit farther out to the artsy district of Plateau Mont-Royal. LGBTI visitors might want to consider staying in The Village, Montreal's famously progressive hub of gay and lesbian culture.
