Montreal & Ottawa - Day 5 - Montreal, QC
8 Aug 2011
Day 5 started with a tour of Montreal City Hall and a visit to the World Trade Center to see a fragment of the Berlin Wall. We then expplored the area to the north of our hotel and found, you guessed it, more churches. We stopped to see Saint Patrick's Basilica, Cathedral-Basilica of Mary Queen of the World and Christ Church Cathedral. We then headed into Underground Montreal to look around before heading back to Old Montreal for another sidewalk cafe dinner.
