Parc du Mont-Royal
Downtown, from "The Mountain"
From the top of Mont Royal (the city's namesake), you get this view over downtown and the St. Lawrence River. Frederick Law Olmstead (the same guy who designed New York's Central Park), laid out the public park—including "the Mountain," the city's forested and hilly heart.
