- Located on the north side of the mountain and just across from the Protestant Mount Royal Cemetery, this is one of the largest cemeteries in North America. It offers sheltered trails and even regular bird-watching tours. Some of Montreal's most illustrious writers, politicians and other notables are buried here, including poet Émile Nelligan, Calixa Lavallée, composer of Canada's national anthem, and George-Étienne Cartier, one of the fathers of confederation. Many historic chapels and buildings dot the grounds. The park closes two hours earlier during winter and spring.
