View Of Montreal From Mount Royal

view of Montreal from Mount Royal

Mount Royal is a hill in Montreal that you can hike up to get great views over the city. It is located in the Parc du Mont-Royal (or Mount Royal Park in English). 

The walk is quite moderate and takes around an hour at a steady pace. You can see for miles from the peak and it’s a nice spot to sit and relax for a while before heading back down to ground level to seek out some Montreal street art.

Do you like this view over Montreal? Have you hiked up Mount Royal before?

    It was March when I was there and there was still some snow on the ground. It was very pretty. I do love Montreal and would like to return with Paul one day.

      I bet it looked so different in the snow. I would’ve liked to have seen Canada in the winter!

      I’ve never been to Mexico City and hadn’t heard of this castle so, being the curious kind ;-), decided to google it and can see what you mean! Gorgeous building as well!

        It’s a fantastic place with a lot of fascinating history behind it. And the view of the forest and the city is absolutely breathtaking. Wish you get to go there eventually. I only visited for the first time a few months ago.
