Historic Site
“See how the city first began along the cobblestone streets of Old Montreal, with architecture dating back as far as 1685. Watch street perdormers from a terrase at historic Place Jacques-Cartier before stopping by Notre-Dame Basilica for the stained-glass art and, by night, the incredible multimedia creation AURA. After dark you can also see the illuminating tableaux of Cité Mémoire on building facades all around the neighbourhood.”
