Montreal Tower (Olympic Stadium)

At 165 metres, the Montreal Tower (Tour de Montréal) is the tallest inclined tower in the world. It is incorporated into the north base of the Olympic Stadium, built as the main venue for the 1976 Summer Olympics and designed by French architect Roger Taillibert. The top floor of the tower houses an observatory with a good view on the entire Greater Montreal region and the Saint Lawrence River.
