Cimetière de Notre-Dame-des-Neiges (Our Lady of the Snows Cemetery)
Cimetière de Notre-Dame-des-Neiges (Our Lady of the Snows Cemetery) Review
At 343 acres, Canada's largest cemetery is not much smaller than the neighboring Parc du Mont-Royal, and, as long as you just count the living, it's usually a lot less crowded. You don't have to be morbid to wander the graveyard's 55 km (34 miles) of tree-shaded paths and roadways past the tombs of hundreds of prominent artists, poets, intellectuals, politicians, and clerics. Among them is Calixa Lavallée (1842–91), who wrote "O Canada," the country's national anthem. The cemetery offers some guided tours in summer. Phone ahead for details.
