My trip to Montreal was unfortunately cut into one night and one day. Met up with the girls for poutine the night I arrived and I had the next day to myself, before getting on my flight to Vancouver.
To my surprise, I think I saw most of Montreal in the 6 hours I had there.
Montreal is very small and everything seems to be within walking distance. I first walked over to Old Montreal, the city’s historic district with lots of heritage buildings and cathedrals.
One of the main churches in Old Montreal is the Notre Dame Basilica, which seems to be a big tourist attraction for visitors and students.
Place ville Marie by I.M.Pei. The skylights light up the underground food court.
Never seen double facade done this way. Wood panels as the interior facade with conventional glass exterior facade.
