A dose of amazement and wonder is closer than you think. Standing majestically at the heart of the metropolis’s historical old city, the Notre-Dame Basilica of Montréal is an exceptionally beautiful monument that welcomes more than one million visitors per year. With the arrival of winter, a magical family getaway is perfect for getting in the mood for the holidays.

Guided tours

The best way to discover the Notre-Dame Basilica is on a guided tour. You’ll learn everything there is to know about this church – the first in Canada built in Gothic Revival style, and featuring an interior design inspired by the Sainte-Chapelle in Paris. Stop in for this 20-minute tour so you can warm up in the middle of your stroll through the streets of Old Montréal. The dazzling gold and blue colours and gilded leaves will have you swooning as you appreciate the feeling of inner peace bestowed on you by this magnificent monument.

AURA, a luminous experience

In addition to the guided tours, the Basilica presents AURA luminous experience, a show of light and sound by Moment Factory. Presented five nights a week, from Tuesday to Saturday, this spectacular performance is sure to delight the whole family. See the architecture come to life before your eyes as the three-act display is projected onto one of the most sublime canvases imaginable: the Notre-Dame Basilica itself. This show is an original way to discover the works of art of this architectural gem, while orchestral music swells around you.
