MASSIVE cathedral built on the mountain overlooking the north western side of Montreal. Beautiful sunsets can be seen from here. If you are into exercise why not sprint up the steps leading up to the mountain to the cathedral entrance? The reward is the view.

Every Montrealer knows that this is where their parents take guests from out of town! An architectural gem with an interesting museum, and home of Montréal's very own saint, Saint André.

Canada's biggest church building. You can see it from quite a distance, but you can also enjoy the view from the balcony

Stunning! People use to go up each step on their knees and pray until they reach the top. About 5 km away

Canada's largest church and one of the largest domes in the world, the oratory sits on the Westmount summit of Mount-Royal. There are trails around the dome that offer nice views of the oratory grounds.

The Saint Joseph Oratory is a church in Montreal, built on the northwestern side of Mount Royal. This Catholic institution is located at 3800 Queen Mary Road. The secondary element of the site is the Catholic Basilica. Unique structure, the dimensions of the basilica and its dome are impressive.
