Montreal, Canada, taken on May 16, 2016

The climb to the top of Mount Royal, after which the city of Montreal was named, was a sweaty one, but worthy for the city views! The story of Montreal was also laid out in front of the city as follows: “On October 2nd, 1535, Jacques Cartier, discoverer of Canada, climbed the mountain under the guidance of the Indians of the village of Hochelaca and, impressed with the beauty of the landscape displayed before his eyes, he gave it the name of Mount Royal, from which the city of Montreal took its name.” (See the original photo in colour.)
