A hotbed for tourists, but still a spot for great finds such as Annie Michaud's blown glass, sold at L'Atelier-Boutique Gogo Glass.

Bonsecours Market is an imposing neoclassical building with a long facade, a colonnaded portico, and a silvery dome. It was built in the mid-1800s -- the Doric columns of the portico were cast of iron in England -- and first used as the Parliament of United Canada, and then as Montréal's City Hall until 1878. The architecture alone makes a brief visit worthwhile. For many years after 1878, it... more

Just across the road from the old port. Very grand looking building, you wouldn't guess it hosts a souvenir market. Several stores selling the usual Canadian and Montreal souvenir stuffs. Such as a bear on a t-shirt saying 'I sleep bear naked' or a bear chasing a man - 'Canadian fast food'. Some gimmicky stuff, but fun to look at. Only expect tourists to come here. All the maple tree products... more

Passed through here very briefly on my most recent trip to Montreal, and if ever there was a story about incongruous outsides v insides, this is it. It's an absolutely incredible building, historic, stately, imposing, and with a patina that lets you know it's been here a while. I really love the edifice itself. On the inside, though, while still lovely, it's just surprising that it's a... more

When you see this building you'd think it was anything but a little shopping mall. But if you go inside on a hot summer day it's a great place to cool down, do a little shopping, and grab a bite to eat or drink and just relax a little. We stopped in for a little rest between checking out a few local museums and taking a walk along the waterway. There is a nice mix of locally made wares, food,... more

A site that was historically the center of social and cultural activities of the colony, the Bonsecour Market evolved into a true public market in 1847. Since then it has been home to the Canadian Institute and City Hall and was completely restored for the millenium. It now boasts an eye-poping array of boutiques and restaurants, an art glass gallery where visitors can watch glass blowing, and... more

Located in the cultural and tourism heart of Old Montreal, this neo-classic building dates from the mid-18th Century. It has been home to a city hall, a reception center, and public markets. In fact, following an 1849 fire in the Parliament Building, it became the seat of the United Canada Government. Today, following two restorations, the silver-domed building is used as an exhibition hall. It... more
