  • Notre-Dame Basilica of Montréal

Erected from 1824 to 1829,

Notre-Dame Basilica of Montréal is one of the jewels of the city's architectural, artistic and religious heritage. The first Gothic Revival style church in Canada, it was raised to the rank of minor basilica by Pope John Paul II in 1982 and designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1989. Nearly one million visitors each year marvel at its imposing sanctuary, its polychrome vault decorated with gold leaf and the sound of its large Casavant organs.

The Basilica is a gathering place where the faithful receive the Word of the Lord through liturgy, celebration of the sacraments and education to the faith.
