H-Bomb’s Friday Photo, Week 18: Montreal’s Notre-Dame

As I write this, a blizzard is pounding the northeastern United States, including my home city of New York. Perfect weather to sit indoors at my computer to bring you my latest Friday photo! Today’s image comes from the cosmopolitan city of Montreal in the Canadian province of Quebec. It’s a view of that city’s Notre-Dame Basilica (Basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal).

This church has nothing to do with its namesake cathedral in Paris, to which it bears a slight resemblance. It is, however, a beautiful and historically significant building in its own right. Dedicated in 1829, it’s an outstanding example of Gothic Revival architecture.

This photo was taken during my visit to Montreal in August 2010. During that thoroughly enjoyable weekend jaunt, Canada became the 18th country on my World Karaoke Tour. But that’s ancient history, because I’m now up to 27 countries in which I’ve sung karaoke! Incidentally, my second Canadian singing appearance will come this June in Toronto; I’ll be in town for this year’s North American conference of the Travel Blog Exchange (TBEX). If you’ll be at TBEX Toronto, I hope you’ll join me for a night of H-Bomb karaoke!

  1. Gorgeous photo! I’m particularly smitten with its fraternal twin in Paris;-) Will have to get up to Montreal one of these days to experience the French on this side of the pond!

    • @Jess: Thank you. Montreal is a fun city and the old part of town is very nice. Montreal is also, of course, really easy to get to from here. And bonus (well, it was for me), there’s even a casino there! If you go, try to attend one of the sound and light shows in Notre-Dame. It’s a fascinating look at the history of both the church and the city.
