Description: www.basiliquenddm.org/ en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Notre-Dame_Basilica_(Montreal) Notre-Dame Basilica (French: Basilique Notre-Dame de Montreal) is a basilica in the historic district of Old Montreal, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The church is located at 110 Notre-Dame Street West, at the corner of Saint Sulpice Street. It is located next to the Saint-Sulpice Seminary and faces the Place dArmes square. The churchs Gothic Revival architecture is among the most dramatic in the world, its interior is grand and colourful, its ceiling is coloured deep blue and decorated with golden stars, and the rest of the sanctuary is a polychrome of blues, azures, reds, purples, silver, and gold. It is filled with hundreds of intricate wooden carvings and several religious statues. Unusual for a church, the stained glass windows along the walls of the sanctuary do not depict biblical scenes, but rather scenes from the religious history of Montreal. It also has a Casavant Freres pipe organ, which comprises four keyboards, 97 stops, over 9000 individual pipes and a pedal board. Wikipedia
