The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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 competitors to the pitches of Jeanne-Mance Park for tennis, soccer, football, baseball, volleyball, or a dip in the community pool. A perfect spot for a stroll or a picnic, the forest foliage is dotted with sculpture art and offers views of some of Mont-Royal's oldest edifices, the towering St. Joseph's Oratory and the mausoleums of Notre-Dame-des-Neiges. Home to musical celebrations and twilight snowshoeing alike, visit here to walk, write, rest, think, or just be.

This place is huge and there are a lot of hills. If you're going to look specific or notable graves it can easily be a 15 minute walk between sections. NO BIKES ALLOWED. it's also hard to find specific Graves as there's really no numbering system to help you find them.

We made the hike from our hotel in Old Montreal to this large cemetery located on north slope of Mount Royal. We made our way to the Jewish burial section and were able to locate the resting place for the great Leonard Cohen. Well worth a look.

I've lived in Montreal for about 6 years, and have seen a lot of what this city has to offer. The cemetery on the mountain is by far my favorite. It's HUGE, and absolutely beautiful. Every time I go, I find a new, and fascinating section. Separated into very diverse sections, it offers the beauty of old European-style sculptures/tombstones, extremely old crypts (that you used to be able to look in!!), not to mention TONS of nature, incredible landscapes, and lots of little surprises! I easily spend the entire day here, and always bring visitors to check it out!

Being a photographer, I have had MANY shoots here. If you are a professional photographer, or just want to impress your friends, the cemetery is definitely a Kodak moment.

Not just for vampires, and the dark side, the Montreal cemetery is a beautiful piece of history you MUST check out.

If I understand correctly, Mount Royal Cemetery is the largest cemetery in North America. It's seriously massive and old. You can drive through the cemetery starting from the top of the mountain and working your way down towards Rue Cote-Des-Neiges.

This is a beautiful place to walk through. My dead grandma through Ouija asked me to give this place a 5 on 5 rating

Myriam is the Director of Heritage Programs at Mount Royal Cemetery ... her historical walking tours are the kind you always hope to get but are so very rare ... her information is organized, insightful and never boring .., of the dozens of tour guides we have had all over the world, Myriam is by far the best ... bringing the long and interesting history of Montreal to life ... check the website for tour dates and enjoy a wonderful afternoon walk.

Quite the place to see! Hope you are good at climbing stairs because there are lots of them, but well worth it.

Nice place to visit when the weather is right but it's so large you might consider leaving a trail of bread crumbs starting at the entrance. Kidding aside, it is so large you will see joggers on the property. Roughly 250,000 interments with 42 famous people. If famous interments are your thing then the Notre-Dame-des-Neiges Cemetery next to it might be a better bet as it contains about 12,000 interments with 163 being famous. Nonetheless, I enjoyed my time there.

This is a very large graveyard. There are diverse styles of stones and little "neighbourhoods" of "residents" including ethnic and religious sections. Some stones toward the front were incorporated into hedgerows, which I thought were lovely. There is a large and beautifully sculpted weeping angel toward the top of the hill (too bad for us that there was a couple having sex right behind it in broad daylight and with a funeral service happening just around the corner--that made the visit a bit awkward and unpleasant). At the very top of the hill, there is a gate and an overlook of the city. It's not the best view of the city but it is private and a nice place for a picnic. You can pay to park outside of the cemetery and walk around or just drive through and stop to photograph stones and vistas. Some of the views really bring home how vast the place is. I consider this visit one of our trip's highlights.

Peaceful spot on top of a mountain surround by a park in the middle of a metropole. Many local celebrities and extremely beautiful statues can be found resting quietly under the numerous old and majestic trees.
