Near the church is located the main square, where you will find a monument dedicated to the city's founder - Paul de Chomedey, sieur de Maisonneuve. Here you can see the monuments built in honor of Queen Victoria. Mille Carre Dore Quarter is one of the most remarkable places of this city as there you will find magnificent palaces built in the Renaissance style, Baroque monuments, and buildings featuring Art Nouveau style. Probably, the most notable building of the quarter is Meredith Palace.
In the heart of the city you can see the Windsor station, which was built in the late 19th century. At first glance the building looks like a modern complex and it is difficult to believe that the construction of the station was completed over a hundred years ago. Not far from the train station is located the most important religious object - the church of Saint-Georges, a magnificent example of neo-gothic style architecture. The halls of the church are decorated with stained glass, tapestries and fine wood sculptures. The most beautiful mansions can be seen on the Saint-Joseph Boulevard. Tourists are free to visit the expositions of the largest museums of Montreal - History, Local History, the Museum of Indian Arts and Museum of Paleontology.
