Notre-Dame Basilica of Montreal, Montreal, Quebec
116 Notre-Dame W., Montreal, Quebec H2Y 1| Map |
In 1642 a small wooden church was founded and named after the blessed virgin. Operated by the Jesuits, this quaint church was the first of its kind to be built in what was then known as Villa-Maria. With the coming of the Sulpician Fathers in 1657 came major renovations based in the dramatic Baroque style. Renovations continued throughout the years, culminating in today's architectural feat. In the place of a small wooden church stands what tourists and Canadians alike call the Notre-Dame Basilica of Montreal, a majestic chapel featuring some of the finest Gothic Revival architecture in North America. Upon entering, visitors will be struck by the ornate, intricate design of the interior. Included in the cost of admission is a twenty-minute guided tour, giving historical and architectural information on the building. As one of the great landmarks of Montreal, the Notre-Dame Basilica of Montreal is an awe-inspiring stop on any tourist's checklist.
