I’ve been going to The oratory since I was a kid. And it’s always great to be back. The view is impeccable. There’s so many sites to go. So much activities to do with family and friends.

This church with a magnificient looking dome, looks impressive on the outside, whether from afar or at the bottom of the hill looking up. One would expect an equally awe inspiring interior similar to Basilique Notre-Dame-de-Montreal, but the starker, more modern looking interior was a...More

We walked to St. Joseph’s Oratory after hiking up and down Mont Royal. It was a crisp fall day, so the couple mile hike was worth it. I recommend purchasing a visitor’s guide when you get up to the church. The $2 cost is well...More

Very modern church which covers several floors with 2 chapels inside also an area where there are large no’s of walking sticks and frames from people who have been cured. There are fantastic views of Montreal.

For Christians and any believers, it is a place with a feeling of spirituality to head out and pray. The construction offers an incredible view on the northern and american elements of Montreal. There is also cafeterias for general population to consume and rest.

It's a ideal vacation spot for both holidaymakers and locals.Probably one of the most beautiful churches I've visited.I remarkably suggest to obtain a chart because anyone will get lost.

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

By subway (exit Cote des Neiges/blue line) with 10 mins walk (right and right) to Queen Mary street where the Oratory is. By cab or Uber from the Old Port (will be around CDN$20). Enjoy your visit.
