It's a beautiful church, in a friendly way. And it was open every time I went there which is not always the case with some other churches. A little piece of calm and peaceful in the middle of the busy day.

Really neat church, stunning architecture. It is well worth a visit to see it. It sits on a nice square and is close to the metro. Other churches nearby also that you can see.

I wouldn't call this church ornate (at least compared to some of the others in Montreal), but it is pretty. The woodwork on the ceiling and elsewhere is quite interesting, and the stained glass is nice as well.

Stopped in to marvel at this gem. Were lucky to have the organist practicing for services. Pure bliss! Inside the front of the church are memorials for church members who served (and some died) in WWI. A reminder that brings close to home the sacrifice of those near to us.

Located right downtown St. George's church provided a great deal of beauty to my trip. Although I was not there long it was a memorable stop while exploring downtown. Also hearing the bells throughout the day gives a calming feeling while you walk around.

I attended a concert this past weekend in St. George's Anglican Church right in the center of downtown Montreal and the accoustics were amazing. I had brought a little pair of opera glasses and they were handy for admiring the many stained glass windows and architectural details. This building was built in 1870, I believe. As I left and walked... More

The sign said it's open between 0900 and 1700 but when I went there the gate was closed. There where people inside and they seemed busy so I guess they did something inside the church. It's located close to Bell centre and across the street from Windsor station. One of many churches in Montreal. Looks beautiful from outside.

Our visit to St. George's Anglican Church, across from the former railroad station and the Bell Center, was one of the highlights of our brief visit to Montreal. We attended the 10:30 choral service on Sunday morning. We were warmly welcomed by ushers at the door into the truely awe-inspiring sanctuary: wonderful wood pews and altar pieces, beautiful stained glass.... More

This is across the street from the Bell Center. If you have been to Montreal, you know just how many churches there are (way too many to count). It seems like there is one on every corner. While it is practically in the middle of everything, it seems so far away and peaceful. If you look at the facade on... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
