The 20-minute guided tour of the Basilica explains the history and significance of the Gothic Revival architecture.
This church is as stunning inside as it is out. It certainly is magical. My son commented upon entering “Whoa, Mom, doesn’t it remind you of the Magic Kingdom?” I felt the twenty minute guided tour was worth the money ($5/adult, $4/kids CAD). The church was founded in 1642 and its history is entwined with that of Montreal. We found the organ the most fascinating with its 7000 pipes and 4 keyboards. We were lucky enough to hear it as they were practicing for Easter Mass.
