Montreal, Canada


Just when I thaught that Canada doesn't have much to offer. Ths isn't exactly an "advenure" but it's manmade and it looks beautiful. On the picture is the Notre Dame Basilica in Montreal. Basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal is a basilica in the historic district in Montreal. Specifically, it is located at 116, Notre Dame Street West, facing Place d'Armes, at the corner of Saint Sulpice Street in Old Montreal (Place-d'Armes metro station).
The church's architecture is among the most dramatic in the world; its interior is grand and colourful, its ceiling is coloured deep blue and decorated with golden stars, and the rest of the sanctuary is a polychrome of blues, azures, reds, purples, silver, and gold. It is filled with hundreds of intricate wooden carvings and several religious statues. Unusual for a church, the stained glass windows along the walls of the sanctuary do not depict biblical scenes, but rather scenes from the religious history of Montreal. It also has a Canadian-built Casavant Frères pipe organ, which comprises four keyboards, 97 stops, almost 7000 individual pipes and a pedal board.
