Montreal Travel Guide
Welcome to Montreal!The city of Montreal is one of Canada's most unique and lively cities, offering a perfect blend of the old and new. It is also the second largest French-speaking city in the world after Paris, but North American visitors needn't worry—over half the city's population also speaks English. Culturally, there are few cities that beat it. Among its internationally renowned festivals are the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival, a comedy show that attracts thousands every year, and the Montreal Jazz Festival, which features around 400 different shows and attracts jazz greats from around the world. Montreal also boasts a daunting number of museums—such as the notable McCord Museum of Canadian History—and its fair share of historically significant sites— including the Notre-Dame Basilica, one of the largest cathedrals in North America. Shoppers will swoon at the sight of Montreal's downtown core, which has over 3,000 shops and services, most of which are conveniently centered around Ste-Catharine Street.
This is one of the largest churches on the continent, and is truly worth a visit.
