IN THE BELLY OF MONTREAL   CLOSED

Dans le ventre de Montréal

Montreal was built on a simple grid model of parallel and perpendicular streets. It’s relatively easy to find your way around… until you step down into the underground city. The walkways and tunnels of this network connect us to the city like roots, swerving and crisscrossing diagonally in a manner that can sometimes leave even Montrealers disoriented! Explore the network with us and you’ll experience the hustle and bustle happening beneath the city. You’ll enjoy a few “on the go” tastings and hear stories about artistic projects, Expo ’67 and the development and undeniable commercial impact this network has had on the downtown core, affording us all an escape from the ravages of winter above ground!

Dates: Saturdays, February 22, and March 1 from 2:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

in front of the statue of Amphitrite.
