old montreal’s architecture shows quite clearly the fact that buildings can be beautiful. buildings old and new, dirty and clean, colorful and plain all work together to make up this city, but in old montreal, it’s those oldest of them all that captivate visitors.
it looks like it’s straight out of an old novel, doesn’t it? locals work (dressed as characters) to keep this garden green and luscious. even though this area – old montreal – is quite touristy, that doesn’t mean that it is any less beautiful.
beautiful old cobblestone streets lead from shop to shop, some trapping tourists, others trapping everyone with the beautiful art selection. it’s the simplicity of these buildings that make old montreal so beautiful.
with just a hint of color, this old, gray building suddenly comes alive with it’s own secret story of the past.
with all of the buildings, and all of the sites of montreal, if you’re looking for interesting, beautiful, old buildings, look no further than the streets of montreal.
