Montreal is a beautiful place to be year round. With exceptional lookout points, mesmerizing activities, and a rich history and culture… it’s no wonder we were able to come up with 4 must-see sights this year. Take a look for yourself, your Instagram account will thank you!
Here are 4 things to check in Montreal:
Did you know that St-Joseph’s Oratory is Canada’s largest church? Once you’ve climbed its outdoor steps pretending your Rocky Montana, whizzed your way through the Oratory’s beautiful inside, visited its in-house museum, and maybe even lit a candle for a loved one…
Go up to its observatory and inhale its exceptional view of Montreal. Located on the Mont-Royal’s Westmount summit, it’s one of the city’s best views.
Despite the fact that it’s Montreal’s most historic district, the Old Port’s philosophy is that “life is a party.” But let’s not forget: gazing out at the water, watching the boats and ships, looking up at historic big stone buildings, make it one of Montreal’s most satisfying and important sights to see.
Meander the cobblestone streets all day, and you’ll find something new (and something old) around every corner!

Probably one of the most charming terraces in the city, we highly recommend stopping by here for a drink. The sun is setting, your view is of the breathtaking old port, laughter and faint chatter is heard in the background, and you’ve just received the most amazing refreshing drink. Paradise, is that you? Snap a pic and enjoy the rest of the night!
Every Sunday, during those warmer months, Mount Royal Park is filled with some of the city’s best sights. Trance-inducing drum circles, an electronic music gazebo, and tons more, this mini-festival has become a tradition for locals. One of our favorite things is to go watch the medieval LARPing that takes pace: costumed folk battling in the field with duct taped swords!
