Montreal Travel Guide

Best of Montreal



Cours Mont-Royal
Break the bank by shopping at the swanky Cours Mont-Royal, its four floors of streetwear and designer boutiques lit by ornate chandeliers preserved from the building's heyday as the largest hotel in the British Commonwealth.

Château Ramezay
Get your Montréal history fix at one of the oldest buildings in North America, the Château Ramezay, where Benjamin Franklin almost persuaded the city to become the fourteenth state in the Colonies and which now holds copious art and artefacts.

Mont Royal
Is a mountain on the Island of Montreal, immediately north of downtown Montréal, Québec, Canada, the city to which it gave its name. The mountain is part of the Monteregian mountain chain situated between the Laurentians and the Appalachians. It gave its Latin name, Mons Regius, to the Monteregian chain.

Basilique Notre-Dame
The neo-Gothic Basilique Notre-Dame boasts a heavenly gilt and sky-blue interior, Limoges stained glass and hand-carved wooden prophets; it even inspired its Protestant architect to convert to Catholicism.

Musée des Beaux Arts
Feast your eyes on the high-calibre temporary art exhibits hosted by Canada's oldest art museum, the worthy Musée des Beaux Arts, then check out the contemporary art chambers in the basement - especially the radical canvases conceived by Automatiste Québec painter Paul-Émile Borduas.

Place Ville Marie
Is a cruciform office tower built in the International style in 1962 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It is 188m (617ft) in height with 45 stories.

Jardin botanique de Montréal
The Jardin botanique de Montréal or Montreal Botanical Garden is a large botanical garden in Montreal, Quebec. It is second in size only to Kew Gardens, London.
