Montreal Real Estate Information - Old Montreal (Vieux-Montréal)

The city was born here in 1642, down by the river at Pointe-à-Callière, and today, especially in summer, activity centers around place Jacques-Cartier, where cafe tables line narrow terraces and where flower sellers, artists, street performers, and strolling locals and tourists congregate. The area is larger than it might seem at first, bounded as it is on the north by rue St-Antoine, once the "Wall Street" of Montréal and still home to some banks, and on the south by the recently developed Vieux-Port (Old Port), a linear park bordering rue de la Commune that gives access to the river and provides welcome breathing room for those enjoying outdoor activities. To the east, Vieux-Montréal is bordered by rue Berri, and to the west by rue McGill. Several small but intriguing museums are housed in historic buildings, and the architectural heritage of the district has been substantially preserved. Its restored 18th- and 19th-century structures have been adapted for use as shops, studios, cafes, bars, offices, and apartments. Notre-Dame basilica is located in Old Montreal.
