Exploring Old Montreal

Alan Hustak

Old Montreal is the classic city, defined by the silver dome of the Bonsecours Market to the east, the spires of Notre-Dame Basilica in the centre, and the historic Place Royale and Pointe-à-Callières to the west. The area is a compact 90 acres, a cradle of history webbed with skinny streets.Alan Hustak takes us down the same narrow, twisted streets that once were home to the great explorers of our continent. As a resident of Old Montreal he provides the adventurous traveller with an opinionated insider's guide to its historic churches, streets and public squares. Exploring Old Montreal also includes tourist information, web sites, and places to eat along the way.
