Get inspired by our lists built around a theme, and experience Montréal to the hilt.
Tucked in between the Downtown core and historic Old Montréal is the Quartier international, a public area dotted with many works of art from around the world and one cannot help but notice their eclectic nature, a contrasting display of classical and modern. At the centre of this Quartier sits the eye-catching La Joute, a bold study by Jean-Paul Riopelle, in which fire confronts water. The area's monuments, statues, sculptures and historic remains all combine to create a sense of movement. Numerous high-end hotels are found here too, as is the Palais des congrès (Convention Centre) which welcomes hundreds of thousands of delegates and convention-goers from around the world yearly.
