Paris has the Eiffel Tower, New York, the Empire State Building, Toronto, the CN Tower, and Montréal, the highest inclined tower in the world. Looming over the Olympic Stadium, it figures amongst the uncontested symbols of the city. Built for the 1976 Olympic summer games, the Stadium is the bold design of French architect, Roger Taillibert. This imposing structure, adorned by the Tour de Montréal (Montréal Tower), is without a doubt the preferred arena for major sporting events, rock concerts and large public and private gatherings. Take a ride in the funicular to one of three observation decks offering an unobstructed view of Montréal and its surroundings.
