Montreal, in the southwest of French-speaking Quebec, is a diverse and cosmopolitan island city. Taking its name from Mount Royal—the mini-mountain right located in the city center—Montreal boasts a rich history and still exudes old-school European elegance; nowadays it’s also renowned for its unbridled creativity, innovative cuisine, and vibrant festivals.

    Climb to Mount Royal’s summit and you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views of the island of Montreal and St. Lawrence River. St. Joseph’s Oratory, Canada’s largest church, is located on the mountain’s northwestern slope, with 99 steps leading to its entrance.
