It's not a good event that has brought us here once again but it sure is a nice choice for a final resting place. Beautiful and serene.

Would I tell a tourist that this is one of the "must-sees" of Montreal? Not unless I knew the person was a history/cemetery fan! It is a very pretty, treed and very large cemetery. It is old, can tell you a bit of the history of the city, just by looking at the names and dates on the stones. Some... More

The cemetery is so beautiful with all the trees, shrubs and flowers. I love looking at ornate headstones. We spent hours in there and only ended up walking just under half of it. The cemetery has an map you can use to traverse the different areas. The bus drops you off right at the front gate, but you can also... More

Spent three hours exploring this cemetery looking for graves of loved ones buried here. It's a massive maze and somewhat hard to locate graves even if you have the section and plot numbers. I'm not sure how often the grass is cut but in all areas where we visited the grass hadn't been cut for some time. It's insane how... More

The cemetery is very quiet and clean. The chapel is tiny, would not suggest come here just to walk around unless you happen to walk by after a stroll off Mount Royal.

A walk through this vast expanse of tombs and mausoleums on the Western summit of Mount Royal, the hill on which the City of Montreal is built, is a great way to catch your breath while in the city. Angels of all kinds line the paths and guard the mortal remains of the individual whose tombstone they adorn. The cemetery... More

What a beautiful place to spend an afternoon. I am from Indiana and have never seen a graveyard this massive. I am so grateful my Montreal friend took me here to see where his parents are buried. It is the biggest in Canada and the third biggest in North America. Right up there also with Mt. Pleasant Cemetery in Toronto.... More

Staying in Parc du Mont-Royal

Neighbourhood Profile
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 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.
