Montreal skyline from Mount Royal

Mount Royal (French: Mont Royal) is a hill in the city of Montreal, immediately west of downtown Montreal, the city to which it gave its name. And like Hong Kong's legendary view of the city from atop Victoria Peak, Montreal too is famous for this view of downtown Montreal from atop Mount Royale. A large hall with a souvenir shop, coffe shop and snacks vending machines fronted by a large look out has been set up atop the hill in the Mount Royal park. These are called the Chalet du Mont Royal and the Kondiaronk Belvedere respectively. Here is a classic view of downtown Montreal from the Kondiaronk Belvedere and the Chalet du Mont Royal in winter.
