Oscar Wilde once remarked that there are so many churches in Montreal that if you threw a rock in any direction you would probably break a church window. Some of the better known churches are Notre Dame Basilica, Saint Patrick’s Basilica, Christ Church Cathedral and Mary Queen of the World Cathedral (Cathédrale Marie-Reine-du-Monde), all located within a stone’s throw of each other and more or less within the downtown Montreal hotel area.
Christ Church Cathedral stands over Les Promenades de la Cathédrale, an attractive underground shopping complex linked to the Underground City. If the weather proves too inclement for an outdoor stroll, enjoy 30 kilometres (20 miles) of underground shopping and dining facilities. Every day, an estimated 500,000 people pass through this network, which links some 60 buildings and provides access to nearly 2000 retail outlets. What better way to conclude your busy day than by tasting the delicacies of Les Caprices de Nicolas? This restaurant serves specialties from the south of France and boasts an excellent wine list and is the perfect way to finish off your day taking in the sights near our Montreal accommodations.
