The blue-and-gold interior certainly is inspiring—practically every inch of the immense church is covered in gold leaf. The imported stained-glass windows show the history of Montréal. This famous Basilica demonstrates how the church played a significant role in Canada’s history.

Overlooking the city of Montréal, Mont Royal boasts breathtaking views from the highest point in the city. Considered to be the oldest protected area in Québec, this large urban park was designed by celebrated landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted.

Students can experience the public sculptures, paintings and installations, explore Smith House, the Chalet and the Beaver Lake Pavilion, and see a cross originally erected in 1643 to give thanks to God for saving the colony from a flood.
