Landmark Tourist Spot
Wander through one of North America's oldest urban areas at Old Montreal. First established by French colonialists in the mid-17th century (after the defeat of the local Iroquois people), the neighborhood retains much of its old-world charm. Admire the facades of important religious buildings, grab a meal on the terrace of one of the district's many restaurants, or simply lose yourself in the web of cobbled streets. Stroll down to the waterfront to see views over the Saint Lawrence River. Put Old Montreal and other Montreal attractions into our Montreal vacation generator, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Beautiful place, many nice old European buildings, such as city hall, church and many nice shops. Not large, walking is the best way to visit. Must see.  more »
  • Learn about the history of a country or a city is the first item on my goal when I make a trip as in "Old Montreal" its beautiful historic buildings, the streets filled with color, enjoy a drink in its many restaurants and cafés. That always attracts me the place, are to their basilicas and cathedrals because I like to admire the architecture, sculptures and paintings. In Montreal, everything is gathered with the old port which is beautiful. A "must-see" tour.
