Discover the heart of historic Montreal on this enthralling walking tour. A professional guide shares knowledge of the city's fascinating past, pointing out the architectural landmarks and centuries-old secrets that abound within the stone walls of Old Montreal.

Start off at Pointe-à-Callière, Montreal’s world-class museum of archaeology and history, and step into the Place Royale – this small cobbled square was the heart of Montreal’s urban life in the 1700s. Learn about the life of Montrealers from centuries past, and continue on to the Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours Chapel. Built in 1678, this church’s name means “Our Lady of Good Help” and has been a pilgrimage site for sailors wishing to give thanks for safe travels at sea.

Pass by the limestone façade, gabled roof and 18th century clock of Saint Sulpice Seminary – one of Montreal’s oldest buildings, this 1684 structure is still used as a residence for the Society of Priests of Saint Sulpice. As you explore the domed, Parisian-style Bonsecours Market, your knowledgeable guide shares insights into Montreal, past and present.
