Overview

Located on the southern slope of Mount Royal, the Domaine-des-Messieurs-de-Saint-Sulpice includes the Grand Séminaire de Montréal, the Collège de Montréal, their respective buildings, and the surrounding terrain, which houses a water basin modeled on 17th century French pools. Visiting the Domaine offers little-known aspects of the history of Montréal, from the era of New France to the early 20th century. The two towers or turrets dating from 1684 (classified as historic monuments) are the last vestiges of the old Fort des Messieurs de la Montagne (1676 to 1696). The Grand Séminaire de Montréal was designed by architect John Ostell in the mid-19th century, and its beautiful chapel was completely redesigned in the early 20th century by the firm Merchant & Haskell.
