We enjoyed our visit on a Sunday mass and tour. It was very difficult to find our way in. Maps brings you to a residential area with a closed entrance to the church. There is also a lot of construction around the area. The church...More

If anyone is visiting Montreal, this is a place you have to experience! It is Spectacular! A native of Montreal, but recently returned after being away for 23 years. One of the places I had to go back and visit.
Saint Joseph’s Oratory of Mount Royal, a place of expression of faith, prayer, healing and peace, the Oratory welcomes pilgrims and visitors in a spirit of openness. Saint Brother André's body is also there to see
Billed as one of the largest basilicas, St. Joseph’s also has a beautiful crypt and votive chapel. The decor is very modern and we were very fortunate to hear the organist play pieces by both Bach and Beethoven to what appeared to be a private...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.
