giant tourist trap

Unlike Montréal (much more a working city) one of those "UN heritage" places.
You are well advised, as a general rule, to stay away from them. The inner city, enclosed by a city wall,
is an agglomeration of junk souvenir shops and awful, awfully overpriced restaurants.
They're not all awful; for example, there was a pretty good Denny's.

They're terribly fond of their chateau dominating the city. It has a nice view, but you have to look away from what,
come right down to it, really is a giant kitschy monstrosity of a hotel.
They think so much of that thing, you find replicas all over town.
We dubbed it chateau horreur - sure, tastes differ.
