La Croix du Mont Royal or the Mount Royal Cross is a white illuminated cross installed in 1924 at the site where the city's founder Paul Chomedey de Maisonneuve planted a wooden cross in 1643. He allegedly planted it there after praying to the Virgin Mary to spare Montreal from a flood. The 31.4 metre tall cross is lit by LED bulbs and visible from anywhere downtown. Next to it is a time capsule with Montreal's children's vision for the future, scheduled to be opened in 2142.
