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

It's so close - just take the shortcut through Summit Woods and a quick walk through Montreal's fanciest neighborhood, Westmount. You will arrive at the Oratoire's back entrance and go through its beautiful gardens in order to reach the front and the breathtaking view of Montreal available from…

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.
