St. Patrick's Basilica, Montreal

4.7
Known for its historic link to Irish-Canadian culture, St. Patrick's Basilica offers grand architecture and ornaments in an active place of worship. The building showcases gothic revival architecture on the outside. Once inside, view the 25 m (82 ft) columns all carved from the same white oak. The decorations feature a mixture of Irish shamrocks and French fleur de lys. The ten bells, also known as St. Patricks Chimes, are a popular draw, as one was originally cast in 1774 and used in Notre Dame.

  • Saint Patrick's basilica is monumental, impressed by both grandeur and beauty, it is an attraction that cannot be left aside.

  • I happened to find it while taking a walk in the city and entered. Stained glass and the decoration of the interior of the church were very beautiful churches. I was just in the middle of a wedding, so I was told that photography was prohibited.

  • This church is beautiful. The service is in English and the priest is a great speaker. If you are visiting and want to see a nice service come visit. I Love how tall the church is and the green. The pictures are from Christmas Eve service but any time is a good time if it's open. It's one of the must visit churches in Montreal.
  • Good ambience. Not crowded. Find peace here. Opened: Saturday: 10:00 A.M. until after the 5:00 P.M mass. Sunday: 8:30 A.M. until after the 5:00 P.M mass
