I'm not really into shopping so for me this is nothing special. It's underground and that's cool. There is also free wifi here which is really good to use. They have a food court as well if you're hungry. There is two entrances next to Christ Church Cathedral that takes you underground. The metro connects you to the other underground... More

Coolest thing were few pictures of the church along the corridor from subway to mall. Otherwise pretty boring, didn't go in any shops as they were typical low to mid range chain stores. Found it to be dull lacking any architectural accents or design most above ground malls have nowadays. I can see this being good if i lived in... More

This is part of the underground city: walk and shop, have lunch and go back shopping: if not there, in another mail near by!

This is part of the underground shopping centre but it's only a small and dare I say one of the lesser points of the complex. Not much here unless you want to go to the Linen Chest.

Located right downtown near all major hotels and eateries....great shopping, and right outside is a beautiful walk. Make sure though that you don't limit Montreal shopping just here, as rue st Catherine is just as good, and outside.

Shop 'til you drop in comfort no matter what the weather is outside! Promenades Cathedrale is part of the world's largest underground city in Montreal. Promenades Cathedrale is right under Christ Church which had to be put on stilts when they constructed the underground. It is beautiful well worth the walk. I don't know how many stores there are, well... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
