According to Wikipedia: The Cathedral-Basilica of Mary, Queen of the World (French: Cathédrale Marie-Reine-du-Monde) in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, is the seat of the Roman Catholic archdiocese of Montreal. It is the third largest church in Quebec after St. Joseph’s Oratory (also in Montreal)
Are these stacked boxes? Nope! Here’s what Wikipedia has to say:
“Habitat 67, or simply Habitat, is a model community and housing complex in Montreal, Canada designed by Israeli–Canadian architect Moshe Safdie. It was originally conceived as his master’s thesis in architecture at McGill University and then built as a pavilion for Expo 67, the World’s Fair held from April to October 1967.” Read more…
Parc Maisonneuve is probably my favourite park in Montréal. It’s huge, quiet and so peaceful. The only gripe is that it’s far from the city centre and perhaps that’s where its charms comes from.
While driving around Ile Bizard, an island that connects Montréal and Laval, I took a walk by the river and came across one of the most expensive houses in Canada.
The TuLyons Residence is valued at $27 million. From the outside, it does not seem to have anything so particular about it to warrant such a price tag which led me to think that as a relatively new building, it must have some fancy modern fixtures that make it worth quite a penny (see the photo gallery courtesy of a third-party site).
I could probably see myself owning such a huge mansion to have family and friends come by for summer festivities and other types of public and private events.
But, would I live in it by myself? Nope! I would be too scared to bump into some sort of random intruders that would have sneaked into the house because it’s so big and I cannot tour it daily!
I parked in front of this church when buying ice cream but even with the Internet I cannot figure out what it’s name is. Next time I drive by, I will have to get out and find out!
