The area
Neighbourhood: Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialised Montreal, the factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have been renovated into homes, museums, and small businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge galleries and an ever-expanding network of restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the Atwater Market, where outdoor stalls sell fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat, street vendors have menus of hot fish and wine, and the indoor market offers chocolate, breads, and coffee beans. Dominated by the gentle waters of the Lachine Canal, Le Sud-Ouest is still very much an outdoor town, with a number of pedestrian-only bridges traversing the waters, bike paths along the canal with views of the Leisure Boats, and massive green spaces like Angrignon Park to stop for a picnic, or to play a sport.

If you’re in Old Montreal it’s nice to see this archeological relic but you can’t go in. It’s right next to the Notre Dame Basilica in the heart of Old Montreal.

The history of this seminary is really amazing, make sure you look it up! Even better sit on a bench at Place d'Armes and read about it! Right next to Notre Dame. Not open to the general public, but you can peer through the gate!

But not open to general public.

I do remember they have sort of tunnels. Two years later, in one of books I read (forgot the name), it mentioned the rumors back then that a woman who fled to the States claimed that there was lots of sexual abuse happened between catholic nuns and fathers where she stayed in Montreal. They used the tunnels to connect the buildings to provide this convenience. Then the investigation (a US general?) reveals there is no such tunnel that connects to the next building. So her claim was untruthful. Anyway, need to hold the book and get a historian or an archaeologist along for such a discovery!

Built in 1685. The Sulpician Preist Seminary is not open to the public but is a magnificant example of early French architecture in Montreal and the oldest one where the priests still live today. They were the owners of the Island of Montreal at one time and the guardians of the jewel of Montreal the Notre Dame Basilica.
