Tourism Montréal

Montréal shares many of the cultural features characteristic of the other metropolis on the continent, including representations in all traditional manifestation of high culture, a long-lasting tradition of jazz and rock music, and tentative experimentation in visual arts, theater, music, and dance. Yet, being at the confluence of the French and the English traditions, Montréal has developed a unique and distinguished cultural face in the world. Another distinctive characteristic ol culture life is to be found in the animation of its downtown area, prompted by cultural and social events, or festivals.
