Day 7: Quebec-Montreal
The last leg of the trip would be 250 kilometers to Montreal, the city from which the plane would go back home. Montreal is the second most populated city in the country.
Montrealis the fourth most populous French-speaking city in the world, however, Montreal also has a considerable Anglophone community and a growing number of people whose mother tongue is neither French nor English.
These are the main places to visit in Montreal:
Saint Joseph's Oratory
Located on the northern slope of Mount Royal, it was built in 1904, being completed in 1967.
Its dome is the second largest of its kind in the world, remaining behind only St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City, and is the largest church in all of Canada.
It is also a place of pilgrimage of world renown associated with Brother Andrés, its founder.
The Basilica of Notre Dame is the first Neo-Gothic church in all of Canada and is the most important church in Montreal.
Built between 1824 and 1829 by the American architect James O'Donnell, although its history dates back to 1672 when the first parish church of Ville Marie was built.
The price for entering the Basilica is 6 CAD and includes a guided tour.
It is one of the main tourist attractions of the city and possibly from where you get the best views of them.
During our visit we could see raccoons walking through the park that surrounds this place.
Bank of Montreal
The Bank of Montreal is the first in Canada, began its journey in 1817 and is one of the oldest in all of North America. The building in which it is located is the oldest building in the city and contains a museum with the history of this bank.
The Chinatown is the area of the city where the Asian culture is concentrated, represented mainly by its architecture and gastronomy.
It is preferred by tourists for the gastronomic excellence of the place.
