Montreal, Quebec: Canada’s French-Speaking Cultural Capital
Cobbled streets, historic architecture, and horse-drawn carriages are common throughout Montreal, Canada’s second-largest city and one of the oldest European settlements in North America. It was founded by the French in 1642, and 2 million people speak French here as an official language.
A good first stop for visitors is the Bonsecours Market, a domed plaza where local merchants have been peddling their wares for more than 100 years. As you browse the area, check out the elaborate Notre-Dame Basilica, one of the city’s most famous churches. It was built in the Gothic Revival style, and it houses a fascinating crypt filled with archaeological treasures.
Montreal is renowned for its music and arts scenes. One of the best places to see a show is the Place des Arts, a huge complex of theaters and concert halls that occupies a whole block downtown. Opera, ballet, symphony, and jazz shows fill most of the Place des Arts’ calendar, but there’s the occasional rock band or standup comedy show as well.
