Church of Montreal (16) - Notre-Dame Basilica by Brady Fang, on Flickr


Notre-Dame Basilica 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 d'Armes square.

The church's 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 was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1989.

The altar itself and the statuary are quite beautiful in design, but the color scheme and the use of lighting are too much for me. It strikes me as tasteless - I have never seen an Apse like that. Yet I am hesitant to judge too quickly. I have never seen the church and it is difficult to know what it actually looks like.

But that bright blue inside the Apse!

Thank you for these churches in Iran. They are hauntingly beautiful.
