This 200-hectare park occupies part of the mountain that lies in the midst of Montreal island, and includes the highest spot in the city of 234m! The lookout facing over downtown provides views towards the river and a second lookout, a famous trysting spot, faces eastward toward the Olympic Stadium. A park that must be visited while amongst the city of Montreal.
Montreal Botanical Garden
Comprising 190 acres of thematic gardens and greenhouses, this attraction is spectacular. It was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 2008 as it is considered to be one of the most important botanical gardens in the world due to the extent of its collections and facilities so well worth a look and spending time relaxing in the beautiful grounds.
Situated in the historic district of Old Montreal, the church’s Gothic Revival architecture is among the most dramatic in the world. Its interior is grand and colourful, its ceiling is coloured deep blue and decorated with golden stars. It is filled with hundreds of intricate wooden carvings and several religious statues. Unusual for a church, the stained glass windows along the walls of the sanctuary do not depict biblical scenes, but rather scenes from the religious history of Montreal.
