Tours of the site of the Major Seminary of Montreal during the summer.

The Major Seminary of Montreal, a property of the Priests of Saint Sulpice, opens its doors to let the Montrealers and the tourists discover an oasis of history in the heart of the city that represents the Domain of the Fort of the Mountain.

The visits, lasting approximately one hour and a half, are narrated by a guide specialized in museology who will tell the visitors the whole history of the Domain.

During the tour, visitors are invited to immerse themselves in the distant past by visiting the remaining towers of the ancient Fort of the Mountain that dates back to the 17th century, the courts of the Domain, the architecture of the buildings, the pool excavated in the early 19th century and the inside of the main pavilion. Furthermore, after a brief introduction to the daily life of these places where reigns a soothing calm, all will be impressed by the magnificent chapel of the Major Seminary. Renowned as one of the works done in the Beaux-Arts style, the most accomplished of the city and for its unique appearance, the chapel, in all its simplicity, will not leave anyone indifferent.
