MONTREAL, CANADA

ORATOIRE ST-JOSEPH

The saga of Montreal's mammoth Oratoire St-Joseph began with the construction of a tiny chapel in 1904 by Brother Andre and friends. However the final structural elements only came together in 1967 - 30 years after Brother Andre's death.

More than 150 m (500 ft) above street level, it is a staggering 60 m (195 ft) from the floor to the peak of the dome - the second largest in the world after St Peter's in Rome.

Reminiscent of Italian Renaissance architecture, the basilica features Corinthian columns, stained glass masterpieces, and one of the largest corillons in North America (56 bells).

More than two million visitors pack the monument each year, with crutches and wheelchairs left behind as evidence of the continuing cures taking place here.

Brother Andre's followers are convinced of his powers and are attempting to secure his canonization. In accordance with the Catholic church, two posthumous miracles are needed to earn a sainthood. In 1982, with the cure of a cancer victim, Pope John Paul II recognized the first miracle; Andre's followers eagerly await a second.

Created in 1917 at the foot of the basilica, the Crypt Church has a main altar of Carrara marble. Jean-Charles Charest, a Montreal artist, has renovated the sanctuary with a new tabernacle, lectern, colonnade, and oak chairs.

At the main church hall, the magnificent altar, crucifix and wooden statues of the 12 apostles are creations of French artist Henri Charlier. Roger Villiers sculpted the Way of the Cross between 1957-9; the stunning interior mosaic was added to the altar in 1960.

MONTREAL, CANADA

PARC DU MONT-ROYAL

The geographic highlight of Montreal are undeniably Mont-Royal's steep slopes. Named by Jacques Cartier in 1535, the protected district of Parc du Mont-Royal covers more than 343 acres of forested mountain, providing abundant green spaces, shrubs and flowers, as well as habitats for hundreds of species of birds and other wildlife.

Designed in 1876 by Frederick Law Olmsted, Mont-Royal continues to inspire locals as an arboreal delight in the center of their metropolis.

Some parts of Mont-Royal offers a nice view of the city such as Belvedere Kondiaronk, the lookout of the Chalet du Mont-Royal.

MONTREAL, CANADA

PARC OLYMPIQUE

One of Montreal's most remarkable attractions, Parc Olympique is also one of its most controversial. Built for the 1976 Olympic Games, it remained unfinished until the 1980s, despite a cost of $1.4 billion, and the retractable roof over the stadium has never fully worked.

Nevertheless, visitors can easily spend a full day or two entertained by the varied exhibitions, sights and activities within this immense quadrilateral.


A few meters from Viau subway station is Star City Cinema





Olympic Stadium

Designed by the French architect Roger Taillibert and constructed by local engineers for the 1976 Olympics, the stadium seats 65,000 people, has a cable-suspended roof and is covered in a membrane of space-age Kevlar material. Today it is used to stage events such as rock concerts.
