Montréal’s subway stations, like Bonaventure, are at their best gorgeous public spaces full of art and light. Even at their more pedestrian, they show a good sense for design that I wish was more common on Toronto’s different routes.
This installation on the ground floor of the Palais des congrès is eyecatching.
The Bank of Montreal Head Office on the northern edge of Place d’Armes is lovely.

The Basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal is a huge edifice towering over its neighbourhood.
