The French Charm of Montreal The largest Francophone city in North America deserves to be visited any month of the year. With activities for adults and children, it gains even more life in the summer, when a lot of festivals and events take place, such as the Jazz Festival and Just for Laughs.

TURISMO

By Nara Anchises

T

he French and English influences blend together and it is possible to see this in the architecture, behaviour and tourist attractions. Bars and cafés open up their patios and take over sidewalks. Many restaurants allow clients to bring their own wine. And in the parks, it is common to see people having picnics and taking advantage of the nice weather and nature. One of these parks is the Jean-Drapeau Park, on Sainte-Hélène Island, where the Biosphere and La Ronde amusement park are located, and next to it, the Casino and Formula 1 Gilles-Villeneuve Circuit. Another one is the Mont-Royal, which divides the city and gave origin to its name. From atop the mountain, there is a panoramic view. Below, groups

have fun at the Tam Tam, an outdoor festival full of African, Cuban and Brazilian beats. Mont-Royal is also the name of one of the most charming streets, in the neighbourhood of Plateau Mont-Royal. Together with Duluth, Saint-Denis and Saint-Laurent streets, it outlines the fun and gastronomic area in the neighbourhood. But if you want Brazilian and Portuguese food, then you want to go to Rachel Street. The trip to the Old Port, to the Jean-Talon and Atwater markets, to the Botanical Gardens and Olympic Park complete this package of classic attractions. Montreal has many more things, just go there and see for yourself.
