Montreal’s equivalent of Big Ben is the Clock Tower located at the end of Victoria Pier. This elegant beauty was designed by Paul Leclaire. Tour de l’Horloge has served several purposes since 1922. The 148 foot tower is a lighthouse marking the entrance to the Old Port. Generations of sailors have relied on the clock’s legendary accuracy. This is a monument to sailors killed during WWI. And, the window at the top of 192 stairs is a wonderful observation platform.
