Photographer's Note

The Olympic Stadium tower exercised a fascination to me from the first time I saw it on my arrival in the city. It's the city most famous landmark and it can be seem from many parts of the city. Its construction for the Olympic Games of 1976, was a controversed one, corruption scandals, workers strikes and protests surounded it. The stadium wasn't ready for the games and took another 11 years to be done, but despite the irate Monrealers' taxpayers, which are still paying the debts of its construction, the Stadium became an apreciatged attraction for turists in the city. As for me, it is a permant refference, I wake-up with its view at my windows and use it as a kind of compass to guide me around the city.
The complex count with two smming pool, a gym and other sports courts. A lift bring turists to the tower top where one can have a fantastic view from the city, the tickets are sold at the turistic hall alone or combined with a visit at the Biodome (an animal complex of biodiversities built inside one of the parts of the Olimpic Complex after the games).
