Step into the intricately designed Notre Dame Basilica, the oldest and largest church in Canada's capital city. At first glance the exterior may seem somewhat ordinary, with the exception of the reflective tin steeples visible from around the city. However, as you enter the church you're met with striking royal gold and blue features, such as the grand vaulted roof, a high altar, stained-glass windows, and a pipe organ boasting more than 1,000 pipes. Use our Ottawa trip planner to add Notre Dame Basilica and other attractions to your Ottawa vacation plans.
Notre Dame Basilica reviews
The last standing pilgrim centers. They dont build churches like these anymore. Great architectural monument. great colours, columns and arches. Reminds of the Cathedrals you see in whole of Europe more »
I love going to old churches and cathedrals, and this one does not disappoint. Great to do if you are downtown, or going to tour the mint. more »
Beautiful church you must visit if you go to Montreal. I have been there many times and always had a good experience. Historic building.
So beautiful. No matter your faith, belief, or religion, this is a place to refresh your soul and contemplate.
