Create an itinerary including St. Patrick's Basilica
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.

  • We just stepped in the side door and were the only ones in the building as far as we could tell. Quiet and contemplative spot to just meditate for a bit.

  • They have a very good reverent Mass. All the COVID stuff is done now so you can sit where you want and go up to get the Eucharist and you are invited to sing along. It's honestly one of the nicest church in Montreal. I love going to Mass there. Great people there too !
  • Beautiful church. Worth the visit to see the architecture
