Everybody knows that Montréal neighbourhoods are singular destinations, each with their own personality.

Montreal is an architecture-lovers wet dream. Whether you appreciate Art Deco, neoclassical, modern or anything in between, we’ve got a mishmash of styles and approaches to satiate your construction curiosity. In fact, I’d say we define urban architectural promiscuity.

A funicular-type elevator brings visitors to the top three observation floors of the Tower, the tallest inclined tower in the world, which offers a spectacular view of the city. The sports centre, at the foot of the Tower, has six aquatic pools as well as a multi-sport facility.” Thanks to flickr extraordinaire, achille_beaulne, for this magnificent shot.
