Basilica/Church, Montreal: 8 reviews and 7 photos
I wouldn't go out of my way to visit this cathedral, especially if you've already visited the magnificent Basilique Notre-Dame but if you happen to be in the area, it's worth a stop. The Cathedral Marie-Reine-du-Monde (Mary Queen of the World) is modeled after St. Peter's in Rome, scaled down to about a 1/4 of it's size, no immense square like you'll find in Rome either, the entrance just off the street. It was built amidst controversy, the location in the heart of the Protestant British section of town.
What you will want to see inside is the reproduction of Bernini's baldachin (canopy) over the main altar.
Located in downtown Montreal, blvd. Rene-Levesque at rue Mansfield, admission is free. Metro:Bonaventure or Peel
