Montreal

Montreal traffic was not too bad. We got in around 11am in the morning and missed rush hour.

We stayed at "Camping Amerique Montreal"

It helps if you know a little French as the owners do not speak a lot of English.

 

We were only in Montreal for a couple of days and so we toured old Montreal

Notre-Dame Basilica

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Notre-Dame_Basilica_(Montreal)

Quoted from Wikipedia:

Notre-Dame Basilica (French: Basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal) is a basilica in the historic district of Old Montreal, in Montreal, Quebec,Canada. The church is located at 110 Notre-Dame Street West, at the corner of Saint Sulpice Street. It is located next to the Saint-Sulpice Seminary and faces the Place d'Armes square.

The church's Gothic Revival architecture is among the most dramatic in the world; its interior is grand and colourful, its ceiling is coloured deep blue and decorated with golden stars, and the rest of the sanctuary is a polychrome of blues, azures, reds, purples, silver, and gold. It is filled with hundreds of intricate wooden carvings and several religious statues. Unusual for a church, the stained glass windows along the walls of the sanctuary do not depict biblical scenes, but rather scenes from the religious history of Montreal. It also has a Casavant Frères pipe organ, dated 1891, which comprises four keyboards, 92 stops using electropneumatic action and an adjustable combination system, 7000 individual pipes and a pedal board

 

We had lunch at this restaurant. The food was excellent
