Palaeontologists seek out fossils in the most remote places on Earth, but you can find them right here in downtown Montreal, without even picking up a shovel. Built from a variety of local and imported stone, the city’s churches, offices, and apartment buildings show off a wide array of fossils and geological specimens.  The interactive walking tour Building Stones and Fossils will help you track them down.  You can also find more information about stones and fossils in Montreal on the Redpath Museum website.
