Old Montreal (le Vieux-Montréal)

Old Montreal (le Vieux-Montréal) has a history dating back to 1642 when settlers from France landed at the edge of the St. Lawrence River and began to build a community. The town became a major trading and military post - at one time surrounded by fortifying walls. Visitors can appreciate Old Montreal by merely wandering the streets and stumbling upon its delightful nooks and crannies. I was only in this section of the city for a few hours and did not get to see all that I wanted to see. Montréal is the world’s second-largest French-speaking city. Hopefully I will be back here again to explore this area.
