On the 3rd day in Montreal, our goal was to explore Old Montreal. Old Montreal is the area where the early settlers came and built their residences. There are a lots of historic attractions around here, for official tourism brochure, click here. We took the Metro (subway) and stopped at Champ-de-Mars station. Outside the station, stands Montreal City Hall and Court Buildings. At the back of the city hall, there is Place Jacques-Cartier. During our visit, the strip filled with Christmas trees was all white – covered with snow. Around this area, there are a lot of restaurants and tourist shops where you can find souvenirs.

Champ-de-Mars area: Courthouse & Montreal City Hall

Place Jacques-Cartier

We got there by around 9 am and the stores were still closed. Continuing, we walked along Rue Saint Paul to find Marche Bonsecours, a heritage building with art boutiques and cafes inside.
