On the edge of Old Montreal you will discover the International Quarter, the new urban space that links the old city to downtown. Over there, you'll stop to admire an authentic Paris metro entrance, the hot pink "Lipstick Forest" of the Palais des congrès, and the exciting blend of architectural styles housed in the Montréal World Trade Centre. A visit in Old Montréal will help you discover the 300-plus years of architecture: St-Helene’s street, Place d'Armes. Cours Le Royer, Place Jacques Cartier, Bonsecours and St-Paul Streets are good examples of all that variety. You will visit inside Notre-Dame Basilica, the neo-Gothic masterpiece designed by the Irish-American architect James O'Donnell inspired by St-Luke’s Church in Chelsea.
