This was my second visit since visiting it a few years ago. The cemetery is filled with mature trees and shrubs offering a quiet, shaded, cool respite from a hot sunny day. Well maintained, it is very welcoming and filled with history. Strolling through the...More

This cemetery is in the middle of the city and offers a quiet place of reflection. We visited just before dark. Not sure I could stay past sunset. A great place of history and reverence.

A necropolis is a large ancient cemetery with elaborate tomb stones. Toronto Necropolis is not that large and the tomb stones are not anything crazy. Mount pleasant cemetery is definitely larger with all kinds of tomb stones, monuments and mausoleums and a better choice if...More

A nice place for a stroll if you're into doing walks in cemeteries. It has a quiet charm and is a good place to visit if you want to learn something about those who were before us. Some interesting markers.

An uplifting place to bring a date or go for a pic-nic! The "locals" are extremely quiet and mind their own business !! Perfect place to go on a rainy afternoon after a good dose of Prozak or Cypralex ! :) Highly recommended!!

After having an excellent experience at Mount Pleasant Cemetary I went to the Necropolis. It is much smaller. Because this is our oldest cemetary I had thought that it would be much more preserved and graves cleaned up. Having been to cemetaries in other Countries...More

St James Cemetery dates back to Toronto's early days and looks it, holding many of Toronto's early and prominent citizens. Oddly juxtaposed across the street from a soviet-style 60s housing project, it stands in stark contrast to the modern era and is linked more to...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
