Church fans should also make a beeline to the colossal Cathédrale de l'Assumption, a soaring neo-Gothic confection with exquisite sculpture and intricate Florentine stained-glass windows.
In nearby Cap de la Madeleine (take bus 2), located about 4km northeast of the center, the grand Sanctuaire Notre Dame du Cap looks like a spaceship sitting on a launch pad. Up to 1660 worshippers can congregate underneath the dome while being serenaded by a giant Casavant organ. A Marian shrine with a miracle- performing statue draws believers all year-round.
