Montreal, Quebec: Canada's French-Speaking Cultural Capital
Canada’s second-largest city is set on the Island of Montreal, located about an hour's drive from the northern border of Vermont. The majority of the nearly 2 million inhabitants here speak French as a first language.
Cobbled streets, historic architecture, and horse-drawn carriages make up Old Montreal. A popular spot is the Bonsecours Market, a domed plaza where local merchants have been selling their wares for more than 100 years. As you stroll through this historic area, make sure to check out the iconic and elaborately decorated Notre-Dame Basilica, one of the city's most famous churches. Built in the Gothic Revival style, it houses a fascinating crypt filled with archaeological treasures.
Montreal is renowned for its music and arts scene. The Place des Arts, a huge complex of theaters and concert halls, occupies a whole square downtown. Opera, ballet, symphony, and jazz shows fill the complex’s calendar.
