|Le Vieux-Port de Montréal|
OOPS! CAMERA NOT MOUNTED, SORRY
The Vieux-Port de Montréal is the largest inland port on the continent. It stretches about 25 kilometres along the St. Lawrence, from Cité du Havre to the refineries situated along the St. Lawrence river all the way to the east end.
The Vieux-Port de Montréal (Old Port) corresponds to the historic portion of the port, located in front of the old city. Abandoned because of its obsolescence, it has undergone a series of renovation between 1983 and 1992, following the example of various other centrally located North American ports. It is one of the most popular visited site in Montreal for local residents and tourists alike.
In the wintertime, the man-made lake is transformed into one big skating rink. The Picture to your left shows the actual activities being held in real time. In the summertime, this ice-rink is a place for pedal-powered boats, which is a very popular activity for both locals and tourist alike.
The Old Port encompasses a pleasant park, laid out on the embankments and coupled with a promenade, which runs alongside the piers or quai, offering a "window" on the river and the few shipping activities. It also boast of a well maintained marina available to the boating enthusiasts right before the summer.
The layout accents the view of the water, the scenery, the downtown area and Rue de la Commune, whose wall of classical, grey stone warehouses stands before the city, one of the only examples of so-called "waterfront planning" in North America.

Place Jacques Cartier (Symbolic of Quebec's past) Built in the first half of the nineteenth century on a site that archaeologists have since discovered was an important gathering place for Quebec's First Nations Peoples, Place Jacques Cartier opened as an extension of the Bonsecours Market. The square was officially closed as a market in 1847 and renamed Place Jacques Cartier but continued to function as one of this city's largest outdoor markets until well into the 1950's, as local artisans and farmers hawked their goods to the hordes of people who continued to frequent the square for its architectural beauty and Old World charm. Watched over by an enormous statue of Lord Horatio Nelson, one of Britain's most decorated naval officers, Place Jacques Cartier remains one of the most visited spots in Montreal. Closed off to traffic, pedestrians, cyclists and rollerbladers stroll down the once cobble stoned streets to check out the various bars, restaurants and street merchants who line the square on either side. Eventually spilling out into the Old Port, Place Jacques Cartier also branches off into the Rue des Artistes with its wealth of artisan boutiques and souvenir shops.
