A must see is old Montreal.
Set in old Montreal – Notre-Dame Basilica is one of the city’s most recognisable structures – one of the most visited monuments in North America
Built in the 1820s – a striking and innovative building – unparalleled anywhere in North America.
Approximately 11 million people visit Notre-Dame Basilica annually — one million less than Notre-Dame de Paris.
The architect James O’Donnell – a Protestant Irish immigrant from New York – and Victor Bourgeau, also an architect, designed the interior, both sharing a common vision – a cathedral that was to be opulent, rich in colour and ornamentation – invoking a sense of wonder and amazement.
Next up – Old Montreal.
Established in the 17th century by the city’s first settlers of New France, the narrow cobblestoned streets and foundations solidifying its European roots.

Mount Royal – the mountain – rising majestically in the middle of the city – a symbol of Montreal’s heritage, history, geography and inspiration – site of founding institutions, fabulous green spaces, walking green trails. Offering great panoramic views of Montreal
