The largest city of Quebec province was originally christened Ville-Marie, the City of Mary. That‘s still the name of Montreal‘s central borough and some houses from the period of the city‘s founding in the 17th century can still be seen there. In Ville-Marie you will find the city’s oldest neighborhood, Old Montreal. Walk up the Europeanesque main street, Rue St-Paul, and you’ll end up at the Place d’Armes Square, standing face-to-face with one of the city’s major attractions, the Basilique Notre-Dame, a Gothic cathedral from the 19th century. French is the city’s major language and French influence is visible in the architecture of its oldest areas.
Anyone with an interest in the arts should have their hands full on a visit to Montreal, with all the galleries, theatre, dance and concerts at their disposal. Of particular note is the Montreal International Jazz Festival, the world’s largest festival of its kind.
Another good reason to visit Montreal is its eclectic cuisine. Try a poutine, the Québécois way of serving French fries, at a food market, coq au vin in the French restaurants of Old Montreal, or a smoked meat sandwich at a Jewish deli. The best shopping is done at Rue St-Denis which also stouts of voguish cafés. When you need a break from the busy streets of downtown, Parc Mont-Royal is an ideal retreat.
