Ville-Marie was the name of Montréal from its creation in  1642  to the beginning of the  18th  century. The borders of this city, which became a borough of Montréal, are those of the Montréal at that time. This is why the city became the heart of Montréal and its nerve centre. As early as  1958, the creation of the underground city started, and then the building of Place Ville-Marie in  1962  and of the metro in  1966  followed. This is where we find numerous buildings of the city, but also historic houses and buildings bearing a typical architecture. The modern city mixes well with the historic city. Also, economy, culture and nature blend well together. The Parc Jean-Drapeau is the oasis for the inhabitants of Montréal where they can do all their favourite outdoor activities and where you will find La Ronde, among other attractions. It's the ideal place to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. As for culture, the Club Soda, a famous “singing” bar, as well as the Bell Centre, where are presented the Canadiens matches and international concerts, and the Casino de Montréal are all located in this borough. It's also in Ville-Marie that are presented important festivals like the Festival international de Jazz, the Francofolies, the Just for Laugh Festival and the Canada Grand Prix.
