A jewel of history and heritage
For over 350 years, the Chapel of Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours, a jewel of history and heritage, has made its way into the hearts of generations of visitors and pilgrims. As visitors and pilgrims step into the church, they immediately notice the peaceful atmosphere and feel a palpable link to Montreal’s past. Succeeding generations have contributed to the decoration and renovation of the chapel: Beaulieu’s windows, the statues of Gratton and Laperle and of Guardo, and the 1886 works of Meloche uncovered in the late 1990s on the vault of the chapel.
Today, we are asking the public for help to protect and conserve the treasures of the chapel for the benefit of future generations.
What People Are Saying
"This beautiful old chapel was such a surprise. We visited it as part of our Leonard Cohen 'pilgrimage' to Montreal, and this chapel is mentioned in his song 'Suzanne', so it was a must see for us. It is possible to climb the tower and look out over the harbour. It is well worth a visit."

"Lovely church with really nice staff. Nicely renovated and easy to stop in and tour the museum. Admission is free vs Notre Dame $6 but please donate to help keep the church beautiful."
