Great views, under the sun or the stars At the top of La Grande roue de Montréal, you are immediately struck by the loveliness of Old Montréal, with its historic buildings and charming Place Jacques-Cartier, located right nearby. Then, looking up, you discover the city centre’s eclectic architecture, overlooked by Mount Royal. To the south, the majestic Saint Lawrence River and its seaway unfold into an impressive spectacle. On Sainte-Hélène and Notre-Dame islands, you can glimpse at remnants of the famous 1967 Universal Exposition. In the evening, colourful lights steal the show, creating a romantic and festive atmosphere. Mount Royal disappears, but you still see its illuminated cross, atop a lively urban landscape... And let’s not forget the Jacques-Cartier Bridge, whose lighting beautifully completes the nighttime panorama.
