Vieux Montreal; Topographic Views
Place Jacques-Cartier, view looking up at the Nelson Monument with the Hotel de Ville de Montreal (City Hall) in the background; Old Montreal is situated to the southeast of the city's downtown district. Full of history and heritage, many of Montreal's oldest and most notable buildings can be found in this district, including the imposing Notre Dame Basilica, together with charismatic cobbled streets. Much of Old Montreal has been restored and is well maintained, incorporating the Griffintown neighborhood and the Old Port. Old Montreal is served by regular ferries and contains many waterfront attractions, historic museums and period hotels.
