An impressive cathedral in downtown Montreal, which is modeled after St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. While imposing from the outside, it is equally grand on the inside. Spacious and nicely ornamented, it reminds the visitor of the Basilica especially the altar which is covered by...More

Quieter than the Notre-Dame Basilica and I was pleased to see thought had been given to worshippers being able to use the cathedral as well as tourists. Beautiful interior and exterior well worth visiting.

Once again this fine building is surrounded by high rise modern buildings, but this is a stand out building, it as a very striking frontage.

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

What are you looking for to shop in the plateau? The best shopping is downtown. Surprised by the restaurant choices. Jardin Nelson is very casual and outdoor dining vs expensive Milos and Gibbys. If you can afford Milos, one of the most expensive restaurant in the city, you have many options. I would drop gibbys. If you want meat, go to club chasse et peche instead. Gibbys is Overrated imo and I have written about it before. Milo is expensive, but the decor is very basic. The reason...More
