As a center point of the old port, Notre Dame offers many things to many people. The plaza out front is a nice place to sit and just enjoy the surroundings.

When you walk into building, it takes your breath away. It is the most beautiful sight you can imagine. You have to see it to believe how incredible it is. With the $5 fee you get a tour that is well worth the money.

This is one of the most beautiful places I've visited. The carvings, sculptures, altar are all well preserved and amazingly beautiful. Make time to stay for at least half an hour so that you can enjoy its beauty.

One of the loveliest cathedrals in a North America. It is well worth the $5 admission which includes free tours in French or English.

Everyone should see the Basilica. It is one of the most interesting examples of over the top architecture that I have ever seen. However, it is amazingly beautiful.

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
