The Promenades Cathedrale is an underground shopping mall located on Saint Catherine West. It's at McGill Metro (Green Line). I love to shop at the Linen Chest for amazing household items.

This underground mall had a huge cafeteria style food shop of healthy food choices, in addition to a huge food court. As someone who eats "clean" it was a perfect stop while shopping to get in from the weather, have a very healthy snack, use the free wifi and use the restroom.

This is one of the malls in downtown Montreal that is connected to the city's underground network (RESO) and therefore accessible from a wide number of downtown Montreal places without going outside in inclement weather. The mall's anchors are the Linen Chest and Dollarama, but it one looks closely one identify the places where various giant pillars are disguised or... More

This was such a beautiful Gothic church. As is most of old Montreal , this was only one of many magnificient pointsto visit. There are always some type of musician(s) playing around the church, with varied styles. It is also a gathering point for what ever political statement of the day is to be made.

If you want to experience Montreal underground it's a good place to start but other than that it's just another mall with small boring boutiques. I would strongly suggest leaving the underground and just walking around the downtown core!

I'm not really into shopping so for me this is nothing special. It's underground and that's cool. There is also free wifi here which is really good to use. They have a food court as well if you're hungry. There is two entrances next to Christ Church Cathedral that takes you underground. The metro connects you to the other underground... More

Coolest thing were few pictures of the church along the corridor from subway to mall. Otherwise pretty boring, didn't go in any shops as they were typical low to mid range chain stores. Found it to be dull lacking any architectural accents or design most above ground malls have nowadays. I can see this being good if i lived in... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
