Prestigious institutions in a multiethnic neighbourhood
A stroll through Côte-des-Neiges gives a taste of Montreal in all its diversity. Enlivened by cafés, book stores, shops, and restaurants, Côte-des-Neiges offers an impressive cultural mosaic where many young people live and study. Its landmarks include religious and health-care institutions such as Saint Joseph's Oratory and the Sainte-Justine Hospital. The area is also home to some of the city's most reputable educational institutions, including Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf, Collège Notre-Dame, and the University of Montreal.
While Côte-des-Neiges Road is showing signs of age, the neighbourhood's main streets are still lined with beautiful homes. Farm houses, cottages, grand Victorian houses, and single- and multiple-family dwellings all provide glimpses into the sector's rich and fascinating history.
Surrounded by Westmount, Snowdon, Town of Mount Royal, Outremont, and Mount Royal, Côte-des-Neiges also has the largest cemetery in Quebec - a peaceful, meditative spot of unusual beauty.
