Learn about the past of one of Montreal’s most popular neighbourhoods.

Home to La Banquise, Chez Surge, Cafe Campus, and more, the Plateau is one of Montreal’s trendiest neighbourhoods.

Frequented by students and families alike, we’re willing to bet that many of you have spent countless hours meandering through the Plateau’s quaint streets without really stopping to think about its history.

Don’t feel bad, we’re guilty of it too.

Luckily, we can rectify the situation owing to the introduction of Heritage and Cultural Walks coming to the Plateau-Mont-Royal next summer.

As part of the city’s 375th anniversary programme of events, The Plateau-Mont-Royal Historical Society and Mile End Memories have teamed up to invite locals and tourists to “explore the history and heritage of the Plateau.”

The program will feature 25 guided tours, every Sunday between May 15 and October 15, 2017.

According to the official website, the tour “allows participants to stroll to the meeting places, events and communities that have shaped the Plateau-Mont-Royal neighborhood we know today. Along the way, our experts will reveal all of the Plateau’s secrets.”

Sounds fascinating to us! More details will be released soon, but prepare to uncover some long-kept secrets about this central borough.

Heritage and Cultural Walks

When: May 15-October 15, 2017
