Montreal, Quebec, Canada - 30th June 2008
Now for sight seeing and shopping.
Riding the Métro
We ate here
Beckie really likes Lush, so we had to visit. I'm not a skin cell, so I don't care much for soap.
This boutique is off Rue St Laurent, which is known for its shopping
In true Vancouverite fashion, Beckie had to take a picture of me here
This is the health and social services building in the Latin Quarter
Then we walked along Rue St Dennis
And we arrived at the Basilique de Notre Dame de Montreal, named after the one in Paris, of course.
The original church here was built for the Roman Catholic Sulpician Order in 1672, but by 1824 the congregation had outgrown the church and Notre Dame was built in its place, in the Gothic Revival style. At the time it was the largest church in North America.
Then we went outside.
