It is within walking distance from the metro station cote des neiges and if you don't want to walk up all those steps at the front there is a free shuttle that takes you to the top of the hill. It's the type of site...More
The Oratory is amazing for its views but the story of Frere Andre makes it even more special. The children loved lighting candles, reading stories, and all the sculptures, stained glass and music. The gift shop offers an exceptional selection of religious items.

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.
