A monument to Sir George-Étienne Cartier, seen from avenue du Parc, located on Mount Royal's eastern slope in Montreal
Mount Royal is a mountain on the Island of Montreal, immediately north of downtown Montreal, Quebec, Canada, the city to which it gave its name. The mountain is part of the Monteregian Hills situated between the Laurentians and the Appalachians.
The mountain consists of three peaks: Colline de la Croix (or Mont Royal proper) at 233 metres (764 feet), Colline d'Outremont (or Mount Murray, in the borough of Outremont ) at 211 metres (692 feet), and Westmount mount at 201 metres (659 feet) elevation above mean sea level.
At this height, it might be otherwise considered a very tall hill, but it has always been called a mountain.
