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.

Beautiful, modern design with old-world charm. The neighborhood is very nice -- trendy, college, shops, and diverse. If you visit, check out the neighborhood, too.

Our tour didn't allow time to tour the inside. The Oratory and the surrounding grounds are beautiful. The Oratory offers a great photo opportunity. Would have loved to climb the stairs.

If you have been to Cathedral in Euro, You will find the architecture here is pretty simple. It is not a wow. What you have to expect is the view from top and that is it. The entrance fee is 3 Usd/ pax.

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

Parc du Mont-Royal
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
