Description

Belvedere Kondiaronk is the mountain top lookout located at the chalet atop Mount Royal. It is the first of two very popular lookouts, the other being known as "Lover's Lookout" and located further East on Camilien-Houde Road (Remembrance Road). Kondiaronk was a great Chief of the Huron First Nations tribe who was present for the signing of what is called "The Great Peace" document between the French settlement on the island of Montreal and the Hurons. The view from Kondiaronk lookout is superb and provides visitors with an excellent vantage point to see the downtown core, as well as sections of the St-Lawrence River, the South Shore and some of the mountains Southeast of the city, like Mont-Saint-Bruno and Mont-Saint-Grégoire.
