Photographer's Note

Situated on the Northern side of Westmont's mountain, the oratory St Joseph of the Mont Royal was founded more than one century ago by the Brother Andre of the Community of Sainte-Croix. It is a place of pilgrimage which attracts each year more than one million visitors.
There was initially only one vault (1904) then a crypt-church (1916). The current temple of Italian Renaissance, whose dome dominates the town of MONTREAL today, was built since 1924.

Here a first sight of this imposing monument which is not the first on TE. In my small series that I prepare in this moment, I'll make you discover this site.

Have a nice week-end.
