This lively district has something for everyone from impressive architectural gems like the stately Notre-Dame Basilica to the quaint restaurants and outdoor entertainment on the terraces of Place Jacques-Cartier to the bustling activity on the cobblestones of Rue St. Paul.
Mount Royal (Mont-Royal), affectionately called the Mountain by Montreal locals, is a large hill located in the center of Montreal.
