Marie-Marguerite d'Youville lived in this place between 1747 and 1771. She was founder of the Grey Nuns, helped the poor with shelter and food, and donated money to the hospital. The Sisters of Charity kept the house almost in its original state. Admittance with a guide tour is free, but one has to make a reservation.

If you live in US or other area in Canada, want to have an European vacation, old Montreal is a good choice. Check the weather before you go.

A nice museum that showed the history of Montreal in a self guided tour. It was a nice break and for lovers of history a good stop.

This is a must in every tour of the Old Montreal. Ranging from Mc Gill to Pointe a Calliere, the Place d'Youville is a perfect place to sip a coffee, sitting on a bench, watching the old stones and people passing by.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
