RÉSO - RÉSO information and pictures
The Underground City (La Ville Souterraine (RÉSO)
was created after the subway system was opened and is the largest underground complex in the world. It connects the shopping center Place Ville-Marie
with the subway and the two main train stations. Later it expanded and the tunnels connect the main subway stations and office buildings and hotels.
The tunnel system is 32 km (20 miles) and links 10 metro stations, 2 department stores, 2,000 other stores, 200 restaurants and seven hotels. The RÉSO has its analog in Toronto
– the PATH
The RÉSO is especially appreciated during the cold harsh winters in Montreal
because you can get almost anywhere in downtown Montreal without getting out of the tunnels.
