A must see. No matter your faith, you will love the Oratory and it's beautiful architecture. Planning on a couple hours to see the building inside and out.
loved the entire compound. the foliage was beautiful and the view of the city was awesome! most interesting part was the preserved heart of the man who built the oratory. beautiful chapels too but the place is a maze!
I actually did not get inside, because the oratory in itself is a church as well, and did not get in to pray or any. But, if you want to take the stairs to get up on the hill, you get a beautiful view and just the perfect background for your pictures from Montreal. Enjoy !
As a Montrealer, I admit it is the best location you can get. It is the highest point in Montreal and if you want to find peace and tranquillity, whatever your religion and your beliefs, and even if you don't have at all, please go! The view from the terrasse is superb especially at dawn or sunset.
It was convenient for us to visit the Oratory because we were already going to Mont Royal. It is truly an impressive place to visit if you have the chance. Photos are permitted in certain parts.
I recommend this place to religious travellers. It's more of a pilgrimage place for Catholics. One of the highlights is the nativity museum as it had interpretations of the nativity from different countries.
The Oratory offers a beautiful view of the north part of the city, especially at sun set. The crypt and basilica within the Oratory are beautiful, as well as the candle room.
