Notre-Dame Basilica of Montreal

per person

Notre-Dame Basilica of Montréal is Montréal’s mother church, and the first church of the Gothic Revival style in Canada.

Its history, marked by the Sulpician Fathers since its foundation, is intimately tied in to the history of the city. It bears witness to its Catholic foundations and the ever-present connections between the arts and religion. Its architectural style marked a turning point in the religious tradition and was imitated by several parishes.

A place of prayer and celebration of Catholic worship, Notre-Dame Basilica has always been the theater of grand events that have marked the imagination of the Québécois.

Raised to the rank of minor basilica in 1982 by Pope John Paul II and designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1989, its religious, historical and artistic importance makes it one of the jewels of Québec’s heritage.

Discover the night of Montreal, depart after the sun sets for a driving tour up Mount Royale, with views of Saint Joseph’s Oratory. Back in Old Town, see the Notre Dame Basilica and ride the Observation Wheel, ending with a traditional snack of poutine.
