Construction (1824 – 1829)
Architect James O’Donnell, an Irish protestant living in New York. He moved to Montreal to oversee the work, converted to Catholicism and died in 1830, just a few months after the churches inauguration.

Benjamin-Victor Rousselot, Notre-Dame’s parish priest between 1866 and 1882, supervised the beautifying of the buildings interior, which was inspired in great part by Sainte-Chapelle in Paris. Mr. Victor Bourgeau, the diocese’s most prolific architect, was hired by Mr. Rousselot, and he designed the basilica’s existing decor.

Pictured is the sanctuary and the altar, taken July 28, 2010.
