We slept late so didn’t get started until around 11am. Ours plans were to visit a few churches and Little Italy.
The third largest church in Quebec, work was started in 1875 and finished in 1894. The church was build on a smaller scale to replicate St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.
Just a few blocks away is St. George's Anglican Church built in 1870.
Across the street form the church is Windsor Station. At one time it was the hub of Canada’s railway system.
Mike checking his map to see were we are going next. You can pick out the tourists they all have maps in hand.
St. Johns Oratory Of Mount Royal, the largest church in Canada. Built in 1904, and added onto many times.
The steps going to the church were unbelievable, if you look to the left and right of the church you will see more steps.
And then there were more steps. Once we made it to the top we found the escalators, sure was happy to see them. Much easier coming down.
As you can tell we enjoy all the beautiful churches in the old cities, so much history and architecture, and nothing wrong with trying to get on His good side, a prayer here a prayer there.
I was getting hungry and saw enough churches for the day. We really did see other things.
Lunch was in Little Italy a really nice neighborhood in Montreal.
The wedding party dancing in the streets of Little Italy.
We had a late lunch did a little shopping at the farmers market and headed home. What a great day, the best ever. They all seem to be the best.
