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.
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
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.
