An iconic bridge, an emblem of sorts of the city waterway and link to the Island nearby. Fun to walk across and great photo ops abound. Fun also to see the bridge from the park far above the city where the Oratory is and then...More

Nice bridge, which now limonages based on the city's mood! Kind of cool I think. The bridge is also a heat spot to watch the International Fireworks festival which occurs every summer at La Ronde Amusement Park.

A bridge is a bridge ! However, with the 375 th of Montreal, the bridge is bright at night because of the various colors put on it. You can either drive, cycle or watch being, say, 1km away.

Get great views of Montreal from the bridge. We took Bixi bicycles (yes, ended up costing a lot) to the island before riding over the bridge. Well worth it for the views. Lighting would dictate early mornings nearer the summer solstice for best lighting on...More
