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.

  • I have been a parishioner at St. Patrick’s for about 2 years and love the community and the beautiful basilica. I was also married there and it was beautiful.  more »
  • We wandered into this Basilica and it was nearly empty. We were able to sit and pray, and fully experience this stunning building as the house of worship it was intended to be. A must-see/do.  more »

  • 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
