The beautiful domed tower of the historic Marché Bonsecours is one of the most recognizable buildings in Old Montreal. It shares the same name as the nearby church. In the past, this building has served as a public market, a concert hall, Montreal's city hall and even the Parliament of Lower Canada. It became a permanent public market in 1859 and remains a popular spot renowned for housing 15 artisan boutiques highlighting Québec artists, designers and artisans. Look for original creations from members of Le Conseil des métiers d'art du Québec (Québec's Craft Council). Enjoy a great selection of cafés, bistros and restaurants as well.
