In the center of Old Montreal, you will also find Notre Dame Basilica.  It’s definitely worth a visit inside to admire the grand Gothic Revival architecture, dazzling combination of blue and gold used throughout, and the stained glass windows depicting religious events throughout history.  To access the area by metro, take the Orange line to Place d’Armes Station, exit on Saint- Urbaine St and walk uphill towards Place D’Armes Square.
