Montréal’s historical buildings shine in all their splendour when night falls on the city. Contributing to the timeless appeal of Old Montréal is its splendid lighting which was specially designed to emphasize the beautiful architectural details of these structures, inherited from centuries past. The warm glow of light mingles with the natural tones of the quarter’s buildings which hail from different architectural periods. 22 gas street lamps have been installed along charming Sainte-Hélène Street, making this area home to many movie-making sets. Discover the many charms of the area on foot or in a horse-drawn carriage.
