Free Golden Square Mile Walking Tour
Hi! I’am a passionate “globetrotteure” who travelled around the world and worked for many years guiding French, English, Spanish travellers around Canada. I am a professional licensed guide of Montreal and I can give you the inside “scoop”of the city, from history, cuisine, architecture and more.
Montreal's Golden Square Mile is the nostalgic name given to this urban neighborhood between 1850 and 1930 at the foot of Mount-Royal in the west-central part of downtown Montreal. We will start our tour from Dorchester Square, right in the heart of downtown Montreal. We will discover the history that made Montreal the metropolis of Canada , in particular the CN and CP railroads and the Catholic Cathedral, Mary Queen of the World, surrounded by important skyscrapers. We will pass by the exclusive "Les Cours Mont-Royal " connected to Montreal's famous 33-kilometer underground pedestrian network. We will continue to McGill University , one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in Canada. We will discover its famous students and professors as we walk through its beautiful campus that houses the Redpath Museum. We will hike up the slopes of Mount Royal, where beautiful mansions built by self- built Scottish men dominate the city. We will finish our tour on Sherbrooke Street in the "Museum Quarter" , with numerous art galleries and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts , whose rich collections make it the most visited museum in Quebec.
