Montreal: Notre-Dame Basilica

One of Montreal’s highlights is the beautiful Notre-Dame Basilica (Basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal)–a true gem and a must-see site.

Lines can be long, especially by afternoon or when a cruise ship is in port. We went shortly after opening and walked right in.

Stunning is the most accurate description. Built in the 1820s, it features a beautiful blue ceiling with gold stars. Other colors like purples and reds jump out at you. Intricate woodwork decorates the interior.

Notre-Dame Basilica, Montreal

It is a famous gathering place for French Canadians. Celine Dion was married here. Justin Trudeau eulogized his father here.

No trip to Montreal can be complete without a visit. Here are some pics from Notre Dame:
