One of the hot spots of the city's non-stop nightlife, this happening street runs right next to Rue Crescent and has become known for its variety of bars and excellent restaurants. It is trendy and laid-back all at the same time, focusing on Irish and English-themed pubs and less on the dance clubs. Restaurants include Da Vinci and Mas des Oliviers (Le). For pubs and bars, you have your choice of O'Regan's Irish Pub, McKibbin's Irish Pub, and dozens more.
The George Stephen House is a historic mansion located in Montreal, Quebec. This Italian Renaissance Revival style manor was built in 1880 for the First Baron of Mount Stephen, Sir George Stephen. Designed by architect William Tutin Thomas, the two story house features intricate details and grand designs in the form of a three bay facade, a pedimented portico, detailed columns and stone balustrades around the windows. The interiors are just as impressive with mahogany wood furnishings and staircases, a huge drawing room, stone carved fireplaces and stained glass windows. The site was formerly the home of the Mount Stephen Club and will be transformed into the Mount Stephen Hotel in the future.
This iconic milk bottle represents the Guaranteed Pure Milk Co. Dairy and the significance of agro industries in that era. The neglected structure was restored in 2009, owing to the efforts and funds by local volunteers.
One of the city's most striking skyscrapers, this architectural achievement is internationally renowned for its clean, modern lines and its surprisingly fluid integration with the area's more historic buildings. At 47 floors it is the second highest in the city. It is connected to the Underground City through Windsor Station. IBM Canada is the building's major tenant; the lobby and public areas are free to explore during the day.
The Macdonald Monument is placed in Place du Canada in Montreal, Canada. Sculpted by George E. Wade, it is dedicated to John A. Macdonald.
Montreal is vibrant anytime of the year. The tourist center of Montreal gives you the low down of what to do and where to go while in the city. Find information on accommodation, the club scene, shopping, festivals and events, dining, historical attractions, and much more. The center will also simplify your search if you're looking for something specific.
Located at one of the busiest intersections in the city, this international Tourist Information Center serves as a one-stop facility for visitors. Here you can get tourist information on everything from travel planning, hotel reservations and car rentals to details on activities, attractions and guided tours for the city and the rest of the province. They also have bilingual pamphlets and up-to-date guides on coming events.
Now standing in the ultramodern shadow of the building at 1250 boulevard René-Lévesque, this striking neo-Gothic church was completed in 1843. Though the bells are no longer in use, the impressive and unusual clock still tells impeccable time in the bell tower. The interior contains many interesting and beautiful innovations: an open concept space without support columns, intricate woodwork and an architecturally revolutionary roof structure. This church is a wonderful example of downtown Montreal's combination of old and new architecture.
Once one of Canada's most important train stations, Windsor Station, a magnificent 1889 structure is now used strictly for local commuter trains. It was once scheduled for demolition, but thanks to its heritage designation it now stands as a beautiful example of Romanesque Revival architecture. Located in one of the more recently revitalized areas of the city, the station now serves as a sprawling and a significant mode of transport for all.
The Cenotaph is located at Place du Canada in Montreal, Canada. This monument pays tribute to the valiant soldiers who lost their lives in World War I and II, and Korean war.
This hulking, beautiful building is certainly the most impressive office building in Montreal, and probably in all of Canada. The magnificent white stone structure stands on the east side of Place du Canada, and features many columns, balconies and other wonderful touches that modern skyscrapers consider frivolous. The lobby is open to the public during regular business hours, but the best way to experience the airy, recently renovated interior is over a meal at La Rapière, which is one of Montreal's better French Provençale restaurants.
This church, designed by Quebec architect Victor Bourgeau and built between 1870 and 1894, is an exact one-third replica of St Peter's Basilica in Rome. Set among the bleak skyscrapers of downtown, it makes a particularly striking sight. The 13 floodlit statues along its top are of Montreal's own patron saints. In the Mortuary Chapel can be found the final resting places for the city's bishops and archbishops, alongside a recumbent statue of Monseigneur Ignace Bourget, the church's founder.
