  • One of the amazing things about Montreal is that you find beautiful old buildings in between to modern towers which make up the skyline. This scaled down model of St. Peter’s is a fine example of this...  more »
  • It is a very beautiful, very well maintained Church, is on the Avenue Rene Levesque, so if I recommend you get to know this Cathedral is a busy street.

  • This church was modelled after St. Peter's Basilica in Rome, but only 1/3 of the size. If you would like to see what St. Peter's Basilica looks like then this is a good free stop to make.  more »

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.
