Decent walk throughout old town. Mix of old architecture and new. Many coffee shops and some art galleries. Better when the weather is nicer.

Just carry your camera. Most beautiful architecture...banks, churches, hotels...old style. Nice. En plus, great cafes and restaurants. People of all backgrounds meander the streets daily, particularly in the summer. It's a must see... Sylvia K ❤️Old Montreal...

We walked up and down Notre-Dame Street many times on a recent visit to Montreal. Notre-Dame Street is a historic east-west street located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. One of the oldest streets in Montreal, Notre-Dame was created in 1672. There are many things to do along this Street, including visiting the Notre-Dame Basilica. There are plans to turn the eastern... More

So many shops and great restaurants! I spent a couple evenings on the patio in front of Notre Dame Basilica and ended up chatting with the most interesting of people! Listening to musicians, enjoying an espresso, riding the carriage, so much to do!

Historic street lined with magnificent European-style buildings and structures, including the Notre Dame Cathedral, City Hall, Nelson's Column and Justice Hall. Good jump off point for the downtown waterfront, which itself has plenty of attractions.

The six blocks or so of Rue Notre-Dame running from Rue Gosford/Rue Saint-Claude in the north to Rue Saint-Francis-Xavier to the south take one through the heart of Old Montreal by City Hall, the Chateau Ramezay Museum, Palace of Justice, Place Jacques Cartier, Place d’Armes, the Bank of Montreal and, of course, Notre-Dame Basilica not to mention by many restaurants...

Notre Dame goes a long stretch from St-Henri (south of Atwater) to the Municipal Court (south of Place d'Armes).. The part west of Atwater (St-Henri) is bouncing back after years of abandonment after the Forum got moved to Downtown...The Atwater Market is very attractive and interesting and the nearby Canal Lachine. On the Eastern Extreme, you have Old Montreal, the... More

Staying in Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialised Montreal, the factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have been renovated into homes, museums, and small businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge galleries and an ever-expanding network of restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the Atwater Market, where outdoor stalls sell fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat, street vendors have menus of hot fish and wine, and the indoor market offers chocolate, breads, and coffee beans. Dominated by the gentle waters of the Lachine Canal, Le Sud-Ouest is still very much an outdoor town, with a number of pedestrian-only bridges traversing the waters, bike paths along the canal with views of the Leisure Boats, and massive green spaces like Angrignon Park to stop for a picnic, or to play a sport.
