  • Historic Montreal market place. Next to many other historic sites in old Montreal. Awesome architecture. Overlooking the Saint Laurent River. Has a few restaurants and shops. Now host lots of exhibitions and other events like wine festivals for local producers and another one for private important, photo exhibitions... Worth the detour.
  • Beautiful building but it doesn't have many stores inside yet. It wasn't worth the walk in the cold to get there in my opinion. Perhaps once the construction is complete it will be impressive.
  • This is worth a visit when in the old port area. There is some unique items to be bought and plenty of people watching to be had. Very safe and interesting things to see. Easiest place to park in the old port areas.
  • Beautiful building in the Old Montreal area that hosts several stores, aimed more for tourists. Prices are a bit high but at the same time you get quality - at least I did (bought some wool cardigans and knitted winter hats - great stuff).
  • This is a history market place in Montreal and it's located in the Old Port of Montreal which makes it more interesting to visit. It has a lot of stuffs and good place for tourist and for locals.

Where to stay in Montreal

If beautiful architecture and views over the water appeal, stay in the historic neighborhood of Vieux Montreal (Old Montreal), where you'll be a stone's throw from the best attractions in the city. If modern convenience is more important to you, look for accommodations in the downtown neighborhood of Centre-Ville, or head a bit farther out to the artsy district of Plateau Mont-Royal. LGBTI visitors might want to consider staying in The Village, Montreal's famously progressive hub of gay and lesbian culture.
