    The Basilique Notre-Dame at one side and skyscrapers at the other. What a contrast, and so attractive to "feel" the atmosphere created by this blending!

    Well the Catholics have theirs, and this one is English and Protestant. From the 19th Century, very grand. We listened to organ music here. Right in the middle of downtown.

    This is one of the big squares in Old Montreal and an area surrounded by history. Also surrounded by historic buildings and some places to eat and drink. It's a good place to sit and rest in good weather.

    This is a statue of Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson in honour of his victory against the French in the Battle of Trafalgar. There is a similar, yet much mor famous version at the Trafalgar Square in London, but this one was th first to be built!

    One can see this cross on top of Mont Royal from a long distance. It is stark and white and a tribute to religion. Not especially pretty.

    Many outdoor sculptures are displayed in the city. Tenderness - La Tendresse (in french) is one of them installed at the corner of Sherbrooke and Peel streets. This white marble sculpture by Paul Lancz, presents the simple connection of a mother and child.

    Large, impressive statue surrounded by a park, at the edge of Mount Royal. Not sure it is worth a separate trip, but if you are in the area, definitely worth stopping for a few pics.

    The 1900 Battle of Paardeberg (Horse Mountain) was the major battle that claimed the lives of 320 Brisith soldiers, leaving 942 wounded. The tide turned with the surrender of the Boer army. Canadians ignored the order to retreat and held their ground.

    It was the single costliest action of the war.

    The monument is surrounded by bas relief scenes of the war. The list of the South African battles is listed on the monument. There is an honorable regognition on the side of the monument that says "Royal Canadian Infantry" which committed 8,000 Canadian troops to the Boer War conflict.

    We've seen Boer War memorials in Victoria, Halifax, and also Napier, New Zealand. Great Britain called upon its colonies and former colonies for military support and, answer, they did.

    A must see when you are in Montreal, you can never visit too many churches. The architecture of this church is very unique and has a Victorian/Roman style to its architecture. Great place as a quick pitt stop to visit when you are in the area, you will most likely spend 30 minutes, if this place holds a more religious significance to you.

    Amazing fountain show that includes fire. This is walking distance from the Notre-Dame Basilica of Montreal. The park and fountain are open 24/7, but the show is only in the evening. Look up videos on YouTube.

    We were looking for a French food and to seat by the walking street. In front of the marina the host stated off by being rude I figured it’s france they don’t like tourist . I asked if the have liver pate she answered “is it on the menu ?” I said no but I am asking so she shout so we don’t have .
    She didn’t ask my husband for the kind of beer he like just dumped it in the table . Then my food arrived with soggy French fries I called her to ask her to complain. she refused to hear me and went to next table to complain about me and brought their empty franchise fries dish . Contained to offer us to leave .
    We paid didn’t eat and know the only thing I can do is voice my opinion . Rude to the top of the list of roundness !

    Many outdoor sculptures are displayed in the city. Danseuse is a dancer sculpture in front of water fountain.
    It is a bit hidden from the street but the water effect is nice.

    It is installed on McGill collegue avenue close to other sculptures.

    A day in Montreal could be only touring the public outdoor sculptures.

    As you come down from the Victoria bridge this new sculpture stands between the on and off ramps.
    At first sight it looks like a white steel man sitting with his knees drawn up and his hands clenched in front of them and made from interlinked pieces of metal.
    But if you get a closer look as you ride past you will see that it is made from interlinked letters from different languages.
    It is lit at night
