Saint Joseph's is a massive church, actually a few churches, under one roof. We drove there - it's not near the tourist part of Montreal. Once you're in the place it looks like any other elaborate marbled church, so nothing thrilling from the inside. I'm...More

This is well worth a visit. Possibly the best part were the gardens, which are absolutely beautiful and so very peaceful. The view from the top of the basilica is stunning - Montreal is laid out before you.

Location is on the outskirts of Montreal, an interesting area, etc., but the Oratory is rather bland, but of some interest, only to see the structure.

St Joseph’s is one Montreal’s great architectural treasures. The oratory is wonderfully put together inside and out. It’s quite peaceful and has stunning views of the city. It’s not as crowded as other sights and totally worth visiting

It's very impressive situated at the top of the hill. The main chapel is large and tall - not very ornate though. The lower floors include some crypts and exhibits relating to the saints but I wasn't very interested in those.

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
