Downtown, Montreal: 37 reviews and 72 photos

  Place Montreal Trust

What is known as the Underground City
Since the temperature can drop to sub-zero even in summer (just joking), the metro system aided by well positioned walkways and tunnels, can join already widespread underground building lower levels and this way can let people walk around for hours without even peeking their nose outside.<BR>
Some people will park their car and leave their coat inside, jump in a outskirts metro station, commute downtown to work, have lunch, shop, have a 5 to 7 drink, commute back to their car without putting a coat.

More Info: Attached picture is for the Montreal Trust building which extend 4-5 floors below ground level (as most of the underground anyway).
