Discover the many facets of Montréal. It's a short drive to the Notre-Dame Basilica—a masterpiece of Gothic Revival architecture, built between 1824 and 1829. The magnificent interior in wood and the boldly modern design of the Notre-Dame-du-Sacré-Coeur Chapel captivate hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. Paintings, sculptures and stained-glass windows illustrate biblical passages as well as 350 years of parish history. You'll then drive by Mont Royal, which towers above the city and is simply known as 'the mountain' to the locals. Enjoy a panoramic drive through the downtown core, which blends a rich historical past with a bright future, keeping Montréal on the cutting edge. You’ll see the city's main shopping artery with its elegant boutiques, department stores and shopping complexes, and finally, Old Montréal. This Old Town area offers one of North America's most remarkable architectural ensembles with an enchanting concentration of 17th-, 18th- and 19th-century buildings.
