A main thoroughfare since 1672, Montreal's Notre-Dame Street (Rue Notre-Dame) is a top attraction for travelers hungry for history and local cuisine in Quebec. Stretching over 10 miles (16.6 km) across the city, the iconic street's west side runs through Old Montreal and is lined with restaurants, architecture, and history. Enjoy an eclectic mix of bars, cafes, patisseries, and casual and gourmet dining options, while strolling alongside some of the city's top historic landmarks, including Montreal City Hall, the Notre-Dame Basilica, and the Saint-Sulpice Seminary.
Notre-Dame Street also runs through Little Burgundy, a historically black district known for its jazz influence and now home to antique stores, restaurants, and grassy parks. Explore the street on foot or choose a guided walking or bus tour to learn a bit more about this classic Montreal destination.
This historic street stretches from east to west across Montreal and runs parallel to the Saint Lawrence River. It covers around 10.5 miles (17 km) in the city, and then continues off the island of Quebec and becomes Route 138—also known as Chemin du Roy.
