Discover the spiritual and religious sites of Montréal’s Mount Royal and Plateau-Mont-Royal areas with this chapter taken from the Ulysses Guide to Spiritual and Religious Journeys in Québec.
This tour will take you into the heart of Plateau-Mont-Royal, a vibrant neighbourhood at the foot of Mount Royal, or as Montrealers simply call it, “the mountain.” History has made this area of the city intensely multi-ethnic and rich in historical, spiritual and natural heritage. You’ll begin near the summit of the mountain with a visit to the Notre-Dame-des-Neiges and Mount Royal cemeteries, and then continue to the Cross on Mount Royal. Your tour ends with a look at the Jewish influence and an outstanding place of worship, the Église Saint-Jean-Baptiste.
In full colour and lavishly illustrated with magnificent photos, this chapter includes detailed descriptions of each sacred site, as well as thematic sidebars for additional information. Practical details are provided for each site, including contact information, admission and opening hours. The chapter also features a precise map showing the itinerary and the location of each site and attraction.
