Photo Post: Vieux-Montréal

Vieux-Montréal (or Old Montréal, for the anglophones) is easily my favourite part of the city. Even filled with tourists on a warm summer Sunday, it didn’t lose its charm.

First photos of the day were in the park along the river.

Rue St-Paul is cobblestoned and pedestrians-only for a few blocks in the heart of the neighbourhood.

Chapelle de Notre-Dame-de-Bonsecours, my favourite building in all of Canada. Even though I’ve still never been inside. When Jules and I tried to go in, they were having a private concert and a woman was guarding the door.

Gorgeous sky and the Chapelle from the opposite side. For many years, I thought that the statue on the top was an upturned hand. Don’t ask me why I saw it that way, but we call it “The Hand Church” now.

Place Jacques Cartier and a summer sky before rain

Now it’s my turn.

Marché (Market) Bonsecours and a field of daisies and lavender

We walked out the end of one of the piers, then turned around for magic hour city views.

We hung around Vieux-Montréal until the last bit of light.
