Facts About Montreal
Information for Travelers
Montreal, the largest city in the Canadian province of Quebec, is located on an island in the Saint Lawrence River.
The city has prospered as a cosmopolitan hub of communications and commerce, as well as becoming the second largest French-speaking city in the world.
Despite the city's size, the parts of Montreal that interest tourists are located in relatively compact neighborhoods.
The main museums and art venues are in the Centre-Ville (downtown) area, where you'll find Rue Sherbrooke, probably the most elegant thoroughfare in the city.
It is the backbone of the city and the location of many museums and other institutions.
Rue Ste-Catherine is Montreal's main shopping thoroughfare, a busy street lined with department stores, shops and restaurants.
The city is named after the Mont Royal mountain range, whose three peaks rise in its center.
Many districts used to be independent cities.
Vieux-Montreal is where the city began, and its original foundations and streets are preserved in the Pointe-à-Callière museum.
The cobbled old town of Vieux-Montréal preserves the French colonial era with the neo-Gothic Notre-Dame basilica or the alternative artistic plateau.
Mont-Royal rises 233 meters above the city and is the green lung close to the city centre.
A stroll through this beautiful park allows visitors to see monuments to Jacques Cartier and King George VI.
