Something worthy of note about Saint Joseph’s Oratory of Mount Royal is the diversity of the architectural styles in its places of worship. The first primitive wooden chapel dates from 1904. The planning for the Basilica with a crypt church dates back to 1914 but was not finally finished until the end of the 60s. Thus, across the decades and thanks to the talent of several generations of architects, this monumental ensemble was realized. More recent additions can be compared with the wealth of materials chosen by the artisans of the past. Come onto the grounds of Saint Joseph’s Oratory and you will enter into its architectural universe, composing an artistic heritage and illustrating a happy concurrence of influences and styles.
