The Old Montreal offers a good glimpse into its history over the centuries, home to both the city’s oldest and newest tourist attractions. And while the cobblestone streets hold the memory of historical figures such as Jeanne Mance, Jacques Cartier and Maisonneuve, Old Montreal and the Old Port are constantly evolving neighborhoods, among the most dynamic in the city.

A neighborhood of contrasts, Old Montreal aligns the imposing charm of Notre Dame Basilica and the majestic dome of Bonsecours Market with its modern boutiques and avant-garde restaurants. Packed with cyclists and runners by day, its recreational pathways are invaded by couples strolling languidly by night. Every night, beautiful buildings are illuminated by daring light show. The modern Ferris Wheel of Montreal offers a breathtaking view of this neighborhood that has been reinventing itself for nearly 400 years.

The tour of Old Montreal was taken on September 10, 2017.
