Chapelle Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes (Our Lady of Lourdes Chapel)
Chapelle Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes (Our Lady of Lourdes Chapel) Review
Artist and architect Napoléon Bourassa called the Chapelle Notre-Dame-des-Lourdes l'oeuvre de mes amours, or a labor of love—and it shows. He designed the little Byzantine-style building himself and set about decorating it with the exuberance of an eight-year-old making a Mother's Day card. He covered the walls with murals and encrusted the altar and pillars with gilt and ornamental carving. It's not Montréal's biggest monument to the Virgin Mary, but it's the most unabashedly sentimental.
