Notre-Dame Basilica of Montreal

Attraction | "Notre Dame Basilica"

This Magnificent stucture was built in 1829. It is probably one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen; it is simply breathtaking.

There is a small intresting museum next to the chapel dealing with the history of the church and Roman Catholicism.
