From the observation deck of Montréal's Olympic Tower, almost sixty stories up (574ft/175m), look down at this stingray/spaceship-inspired structure. It's the Biodôme. Originally built as the velodrome for the 1976 Olympics, it was converted in...

7070 Avenue Henri-Julien, Montréal, QC H2S 3S3, Canada

Save Place
1981 McGill College Ave, Montreal, QC, Canada

Save Place
3800 Chemin Queen Mary, Montréal, QC H3V 1H6, Canada
Mark Twain, when visiting Montréal, wrote: "this is the first time I was ever in a city where you couldn't throw a brick without breaking a church window." The general vibe here is no longer very religious, though. Montréal, in fact, has one of...
Save Place
Montreal, QC, Canada
The vibrant-but-not-always-easy rapport between French and English is a huge part of what makes Montréal my favorite city in North America. The phrase 'two solitudes,' made famous by Canadian author Hugh MacLellan, inevitably came to mind when I...
