Our Montreal

 

Montreal is a North American metropolis with a hint of an old European soul. It is ranked the second largest Francophone city in the world after Paris. Local Quebeckers mingle with new generations of immigrants who have come here to find a different and better life, making it a melting pot of cultures that form the Montreal of today.

Amongst many attractions the city has to offer here are some of downtown Montreal’s main ones:

 

St. Catherine Street: St. Catherine Street is the commercial hub of Montreal. Crossing the city’s business district and various neighbourhoods it crosses the city’s business district and various neighbourhoods, such as in the west the Anglophone area of Westmount, through the Place des Arts, home for many yearly festivals and international art representations, and to the east, the famous gay village. St. Catherine Street runs parallel to Montreal’s underground city; home to numerous shops, office tower basements and food courts that provide a life of their own and a sanctuary of warmth on Montreal’s wintery days.
