From Notredame to Old Quebec and Clock Tower, we head on to complete your day tour in Montreal. Next stop is Biosphere and St. Joseph Oratory. It was a nice weather, not too hot and the cold breeze is tolerable. Plus, the feel of being in Montreal is different back in Toronto. An 8-hours drive away but different. I think both have different charms, the places and people will have a place in my heart (too cheesy).
After getting some rest and lunch, we head on to Biosphere. Biosphere had a museum inside, but we didn’t get inside. It was closed back then and I can’t remember why. Going to the museum have an admission fee. But walking around the biosphere is free. The biosphere is structured amazingly. And the garden is just stunningly beautiful. Flowers are in full bloom. The outdoor area is just beaming with tranquility.
There’s a lot of dandelions in the area too, so it’s time and my first try blowing some! I don’t see these many dandelions back in the Philippines. Apparently, you have to blow it hard to capture it in photo hehehe.
We head on to our next stop which is St. Joseph’s Oratory. It’s a Catholic sanctuary of Mount Royal’s Westmount Summit here in Montreal.
And since it’s located on top, you have to climb the stairs to reach the sanctuary. But in case you’re with an elder or disability, you can opt for the escalators. Below photos are the amazing view once you reached the top stairs.
Once you get inside the church, you’ll feel the solemnity of St. Joseph’s Oratory.
And during this sightseeing trip even if we’re tired from seem to be endless walking, I start to appreciate the blooming flowers on the side road. Such beauty that nature gives back.
