AAA Editor Notes
Old Montréal Bounded by the river and rues des Soeurs-Grises, Notre-Dame and St-Hubert (M: Place-d'Armes, Square-Victoria or Champ-de-Mars), this is a 38-hectare (94-acre) historic area with some buildings dating to the 17th century. Government offices, courthouses, shipping interests and the financial district occupy the site of Ville-Marie, the original settlement.
The Old City is best seen by walking along rues Notre-Dame, Bonsecours and St-Paul. A brochure with a map outlining a self-guiding tour of the area is available from Tourisme Montréal.
