Montreal is the biggest city in the Quebec province with its French-Canadian heritage and is situated on an island in the Saint Lawrence River. It features gothic architecture such as the Notre Dame Basilica, the historical quarter of the city and the Latin quarter. The other city dominating the area is Quebec City and both have a wide range of boroughs including the cobbled streets of La Vielle Ville with thriving café cultures and lively shopping streets. Near to Quebec City is the Parc National de la Jacques-Cartier which is a combination of UNESCO World Biospeger Reserve and miles of unspoilt territory. Quebec City itself is a mix of the two founding cultures of the city and encompasses both the historical and modernity and is well worth exploring to learn more about the area.
