This richly ornate church is the jewel of Old Montreal. Used for state funerals and weddings, its delicately painted frescoes, walls, and ceilings inspire the most disspirited soul to rejoice. Pay for the tour, it's worth it. This is the site of a most spectacular Christmas Mass and was once home to the Christmas recital of Handel's Messiah (it may still be sung there). If you get the opportunity to go to these take advantage of it. Both are by ticket only and are normally sold in October and November through Ticketmaster.
