I've lived in Montreal for about 6 years, and have seen a lot of what this city has to offer. The cemetery on the mountain is by far my favorite. It's HUGE, and absolutely beautiful. Every time I go, I find a new, and fascinating...More

Driving by on your way to the observatory spot is more than enough. There is no need to devote a whole lot of time for it. The cross, and the hikes around the park are a lot more interesting.

I have a weird fascination with Graveyards I love the crypts and mausoleums and the carved stones. I had to see this huge one in Montreal. This was a great walk and we found the Molsen Beer crypt.

Always well attended by joggers, and some picnic lovers, this is a quiet place where respect is primordial. Great for thinkers, meditators or loners, it offers magnificent tombstones and chapels, history, old trees, bird watching, or if you just feel like a good cleansing cry....More

A bit of a change for the entrance as they had asome water damage, but you have access to the main part of the oratory. Always very impressive in itself....and the view of the city from up there is great.

Quite the place to see! Hope you are good at climbing stairs because there are lots of them, but well worth it.

I think it is the third largest cemetery in the world. It sits on top of Mont Royal in the park. Beautiful setting.

I adore visiting cemeteries and was delighted with this one. The variety of plots reflects the diversity of the city itself and I adored seeing the changes and shifts. If you are in the Mount Royal area avoid the crowds and enjoy the beautiful statuary,...More

We called today with no appointment to try and trace a relative who had died in 1958. No problem, the staff were very helpful and we located our relative. The cemetery is very well looked after.

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
