Corner of René-Lévesque Blvd. and Mansfield Street

Inspired by the Italian renaissance revival, Mary Queen of the World Cathedral was modeled after Saint Peter's Basilica in Rome. Although the interior of the cathedral does not quite match the grandeur of Saint Peter's Basilica, the nave's architectural layout, the white and gold wooden coffered vault, and the baldachin with spiral columns are quite interesting. The curvature of the intersecting vaults almost steals the show from the many paintings and gildings. It is free every Saturday, 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

9. If You Are A Broke Couple Go Walk Through Old Montreal

A post shared by MTLBlog (@mtlblog) on

Montreal is a very romantic setting that is itself priceless. Your date has probably been to Old Montreal multiple times but why not explore the city in a different way. I suggest taking your date to Old Montreal and showing them all the great architecture! They will truly be amazing by the beauty behind our city.

For romance, kissing, and looking over the whole city, I suggest driving up to Mount Royal. You can enjoy Mount Royal during the day and enjoy the cityscape or you can go at night with your date and have a romantic stargazing date. This is always free and it's always a safe date idea.

I honestly love biking with my boyfriend and honestly I think it's a great date where you don't have to spend any money. For those couples who love to bike, I suggest biking down the Lachine Canal towards Atwater Market for a fun Montreal date.
