Founded in 1642, Montreal went on to become a major North-American metropolitan city. A key element of its urban heritage is the historic city center, called Old Montreal, which was described in the New York Times as one of the most attractive 18th- and 19th-century neighborhoods anywhere on the continent, where you can easily trace the city's evolution from a trading post to a French town to a British city to today's modern, French-dominated metropolis.
