Major Montreal Attractions
Montreal vacations are filled with history and charm. In Old Montreal, the streets practically whisper to you with stories of a rugged settlement turned cosmopolitan mecca.
Notre-Dame Basilica: This Gothic Revival church is among the city’s most stunning architecture. Don’t miss a tour of the inside, with its azure blue ceiling covered in golden stars.
Marché Bonsecours: This hundred-year-old public market is much more than a colorful showcase of the best local art and cuisine. Its domed, Renaissance Revival building is a National Historic Site of Canada.
When you have had your fill of history and beautiful buildings, make your way over to the modern side of the city: The Golden Square Mile.
Musée des Beaux-Arts: Montreal’s Museum of Fine Arts is one of the best museums in Canada. The diverse collection includes classical artists like Rembrandt, Frank Gehry–designed furniture, and contemporary Canadian masterpieces.
