La Cours Des Arts Du Vieux Montreal is a must see on your visit to Montreal.
It was a wonderful surprise to see the amount of effort each artisan put into his arts and the variety of hand made goods was really impressive; jewelry, watches,...More
Wonderful centuries old courtyard occupied by artists. It was a pleasure shopping there as I got to have conversations with artists and creators with captivating stories about their art and purchase wonderful, original handmade gifts.

Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic centre of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its centre, street performers and artists compete with
sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theatre.
