After a Spectacular Sunset on the Stairs of the Oratory

Expansive view from the stairs of the Saint-Joseph Oratory, where the hearth of Saint-Frere Andre is exposed. Two millions pilgrims visit the oratory each year. "The lantern, situated immediately below the cross at the summit of the exterior dome offers a unique panoramic view of Montreal that is unmatched from any other point in the city. The stairs which lead from the street to the crypt church have two parallel flights of 283 concrete steps separated by a central flight of 99 wooden steps reserved for pilgrims wishing to climb on their knees. The Oratory is taller than a number of famous churches including Saint Paul’s Cathedral in London, Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in New York, and the Basilica of Sainte-Anne de Beaupré."
