Discover the heart of historic Montreal on this enthralling walking tour. A professional guide shares knowledge of the city's storied 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 plaza 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 insight into Montreal, past and present.
