Notre Dame Boscos Church is located in the old city of Montreal, close to the old port. No tickets are required. It is said to be a church specially set up for crew members. Although it is small in size, it is very holy and beautiful.
Located in the Old Port, this church was once Montreal's fur trading place, and it was also a spiritual post for ocean-going crews from Europe. It is said that the crew members will come here to pray before setting off for a safe voyage. The decoration in the church therefore has many models of ocean-going sailing ships. However, compared to the famous Notre-Dame Cathedral not far away, this church is more like a memory freeze of the glorious past.
