Simply a magnificent church to see, sitting on the side of Mount Royal. It was worth dealing with the crowds and it was crowded. Definitively set aside enough time not only for the crowds but to walk up the 99 stairs to the church.
I came here with my buddy's and we where shocked by the size of the church. The architecture is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. Be ready to climb a lot of stairs and take a lot of pictures. It was $5 gate fee and...More

If you have been to Cathedral in Euro, You will find the architecture here is pretty simple. It is not a wow.

We went to the 11:00 am mass on a Sunday. Climbing the many stairs was a challenge, but once inside there were escalators between the different levels. The service was in English, but it was not in the main sanctuary. It was in the "chapel",...More
Montreal was named for this hilly highland, where the tallest spot in the city overlooks its most extensive parkland. The greenspace of Parc du Mont-Royal is an outdoorsman's dream, with hiking trails and nature walks that cater to every season and level of athlete. In the winter, cross-country skiers, tobogganers, and ice skaters don their equipment by Beaver Lake and its pavilion, while the warmer months bring families and
competitors to the pitches of Jeanne-Mance Park for tennis, soccer, football, baseball, volleyball, or a dip in the community pool. A perfect spot for a stroll or a picnic, the forest foliage is dotted with sculpture art and offers views of some of Mont-Royal's oldest edifices, the towering St. Joseph's Oratory and the mausoleums of Notre-Dame-des-Neiges. Home to musical celebrations and twilight snowshoeing alike, visit here to walk, write, rest, think, or just be.
