Olympic Village, Montreal: 31 reviews and 42 photos

  Olympic Park Stadium
by joanj

Stopping here on the city tour, which was part of our Canadian Coast to Coast tour, I had to take the photograph under a tree to try and keep the camera dry. Yes it more or less rained on the few days we stayed in Montreal.

The stadium was originally built for the l976 Olympic Games, - Architect was Roger Tailibert.

There is a panoramic view of Montreal from the Observatory at the top of the world's tallest inclined tower. It is said that on a clear day you can see up to 80 km's in every direction.

You can get there via a cable car with large windows providing a view of the city. The two-level cable car is one of the few in the world capable of carrying 76 passengers at once.
