MONTREAL - PAR DEUX!
Here's a special post for Saturday. One could never have too many picture of Montreal .... Today's post features the stunning architecture and historic beauty of this stunning city.
Located literally a few blocks from my hotel, The Musee Des Beaux Arts De Montreal houses some exquisite collections. Unfortunately it was under construction and only the annex featuring Gautier creations was open. However the stunning fluted columned limestone building could still be viewed.
Several cool free form sculptures of black onyx decorate the front facade.
LOVE the port-o-potty. It makes a tremendous artistic statement.
Talk about gorgeous ...
Another great sculpture.
Past and present living harmoniously together.
Architecture ... Architecture ... Architecture
And even more!
How about just one more.? The most beautiful example of all ...
THE BASILICA OF NOTRE DAME.
And now it's time for my afternoon iced latte.... Old Montreal is dotted with tons of charming cafe's so sit down, relax, and join me.
Thanks for dropping by. I do hope you enjoyed an architectural tour of Montreal. Enjoy your weekend!
