A most beautiful church

Notre-Dame Basilica, Montreal

Notre-Dame Basilica, Montreal

I love to visit great churches when I travel and Montreal has one of the best, the Notre-Dame Basilica. The church is located in Old Montreal, and there has been a church at the site since the mid 17th century, initially a small one run by the Jesuits. The present building was constructed in the 1820s.

In my opinion the most impressive part of the ornate interior is the rich blue background which sets off the many yellow gold features.
