We've said it before and we'll say it again: Montreal is a pretty beautiful city. And as much as we love showing it off to visitors, we love getting spectacular views of our hometown, too. And why not? A city this beautiful deserves to be seen, and there are certain places in Montreal that offer the absolute best glimpses of what our city has to offer.\nWhen you think of where to get a pretty big picture of the island, you probably think of the chalet on top of Mount Royal.\nEditor's Choice: You Could Be Fined $171 If You Hang Your Mask On Your Rearview Mirror In Quebec\nIt's pretty much a right of passage, anyway.\nBut sometimes when you don't want to go to a crowded viewpoint, you want to try something new.\nFortunately, there are so many other places to get incredible sights of our city that'll make you say "Wow!" no matter how many times you go there.\nPlus, seeing Montreal from all angles and all perspectives will give you exactly that: a new perspective on your city.\nBecause even when you think you've seen it all, Montreal always finds a new way to surprise you.\nTake a look at the list below, and we'll see you there.\nWestmount Summit\nAddress: Westmount Summit, Westmount, QC\nView this post on Instagram A post shared by Mayank Vijra (Manu) (@mayank_vijra) on Sep 6, 2019 at 11:14pm PDT\nLocated in Westmount, the Westmount Summit is at the peak of one of the summits of Mount Royal.
