One of the most visually interesting and historic buildings on the waterfront is the Bonsecours Market. Completed in 1860, it was the central marketplace here for a hundred years and is designated as a National Historic Site in Canada. Today it is a multipurpose building with shops, cafes, and offices.

We walked to La Grange Gourmande on Place Jacques-Cartier for dinner, and an evening rain developed during the meal giving us a good excuse to eat dessert while waiting for the rain to stop. At 10 p.m., Montreal put on a fireworks display over the river, and we watched it from the riverwalk along with thousands of others.
