Montréal past, present, and future

Back to the future

Old Montréal is a district of contrasts. Alongside the stately grace of the Notre-Dame Basilica and the Bonsecours Market’s glistening dome awaits a wealth of cutting-edge design shops and forward-thinking restaurants. The riverside pathways that teem with joggers and cyclists throughout the day swell with romantic strolling couples after the sun goes down. The area’s beautiful buildings transform nightly into glowing beacons with innovative lighting effects and the modern Grande Roue de Montréal ferris wheel offers new vistas over a grand quartier nearly 400 years in the making.
