Notre-Dame Basilica, Montreal

The Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal is the city's most spectacular church.

The Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal is the city's most spectacular church. A gem of Gothic Revival architecture, it was designed by New York architect James O'Donnell who lies buried in the crypt.

The stunning interiors are a riot of color with 24k gold stars on a blue ceiling, and red, blue and gold columns in the nave. The main altar is carved in linden wood, and behind it is the Chapelle Sacré-Coeur (Sacred Heart Chapel), which has a bronze altar with 32 panels of sculptural motifs representing birth, life, and death. The intricate wooden carvings and stained glass windows from Limoges (France) depicting the religious history of Ville-Marie add to the artistic detail of the church. Also of note is the 7000 pipe Casavant Frères pipe organ.

The western tower La Persévérance houses the Jean-Baptiste – an 11 ton Le Gros Bourdon (Great Bell), and the eastern tower La Tempérance houses a carillon of 10 bells that toll on special occasions.

Guided tours are available for visitors to learn more about the history of the church. Tours run every half hour from 9 am to 4.30 pm Monday through Friday, and till 3.30 pm on Saturdays. Service is at 5 pm daily and on Sunday mornings, during which photography is prohibited.
