St-Jean Baptiste church

St-Jean Baptiste catholic church was originally built in 1874, in the St-Jean Baptiste village (today, St-Jean Baptiste quarter of Plateau Mont-Royal), named after Quebec’s patron saint.

The church has a magnificent Baroque interior, conceived by famous architect Emile Vanier, which can be seen during regular services and occasion organ recitals.

The church was seriously damaged by three fires and the current church was built in 1912, but one section dates from 1899.
