Montreal Basilique Notre-Dame The Basilique Notre-Dame has an interesting story. In the early 1800s the church wanted to break up Montreal Island into parishes to be administered by the Bishop of Quebec but the rulers of the day, the Sulpicians, were opposed so they built this massive cathedral so that all the residents of Montreal Island would worship in one place and forestall the Bishop's plan. The residents weren't so delighted about having to travel so far for church but there you go.
