Iconic, Historic Old Montreal
Old Montreal is iconic in the sense that it is where North America meets Europe, and where history meets the present; in fact, Old Montreal could fool North American visitors into believing they've traveled halfway across the world. Whether it's the 300-year-old cobblestone streets, the dramatic architecture inside Notre-Dame Basilica, the lively Place Jacques-Cartier, or the many upscale restaurants along Rue Saint-Paul, Old Montreal is not short of iconic things to see, do, and eat.

Revive the Gothic

Montreal's famed basilica is a major landmark and one of the most popular tourist destinations in the city. But don't let that dissuade you from visiting; Notre-Dame is one of the world's finest examples of Gothic Revival architecture.

The pipe organ is breathtaking, and even more impressive to hear than it is to look at. If you're in town during the Christmas holiday season, it's worth your time to take in a performance.

Admission to the basilica is $5 Canadian, eh.
