History and modernity come together in Montréal 

Montréal is a place where people have come together for millennia, from the Kanien'kéha(Mohawk) people who call the island Tiohtiá:ke, to the arrival of European settlers, to the myriad of cultures and faiths represented today. Established as a Catholic enclave in the 1600s by the French, Montréal is known as the “City of a hundred bell towers” whose religious architecture and spiritual sites have been shaped by waves of migration. In this vibrant multi-faith city, home to a diverse population of Indigenous and other peoples, Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism and other world religions welcome visitors seeking a spiritual journey or who simply want to enjoy the art, history and architectural splendour of Montréal’s many religious sites.
