We visited the Old Town in Montreal and everywhere we walked you could see the beautiful silver dome on the Bonsecours Market building. For more than 100 years, it was the main public market in the Montreal area. It also briefly accommodated the Parliament of...More

We'd been to Old Montreal many times before but somehow always missed going to this market. Wish we hadn't bothered. The building is gorgeous and definitely worth a look, but only from the outside. Inside is a mish-mash of tourist junk, overpriced foreign-made crafts and...More

This is a very pretty building with lots of historic value...but it is definitely full of tourist shops. It was less busy than the shops in other areas, so it’s a good place to pick up your ‘stereotypically Canadian’ gifts for acquaintances and coworkers.

It's way too expensive there. I though it was supposed to be local artisan and nice crafts but they sell mostly tourists' trinkets.

The market appears to cater exclusively to non-Canadian travelers, targeting foreigners who are looking to buy plaid, maple leaf decorated shirts, wood carvings, and other kitchy items. Dont expect anything unique or innovative that you can't find from any gift shop on Rue St Paul.

This is not what you would see in Europe, it's not the mega all under one roof shopping centre. However, there are a great selection of shops selling most near everything you might want. Lots of cafes and places to eat. Worth a look as...More

As someone who has traveled extensively throughout Europe I was extremely underwhelmed by this building, especially the dome. It's simplistic to the point of dull and the spire looks like the architects ran out of money or something. Wasn't impressed with the few shops I...More

The building is incredible and looking at it we had high hopes. However, the shops inside were not impressive and the layout was odd. It lacked charm and interest. There are plenty of shops and food in old town to explore. I would spend your...More

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
