The ancient stone towers tucked behind the walls of downtown’s Grand Seminaire on Sherbrooke just east of Atwater are among Canada’s most ancient structures. The towers also form part of one of the country's most mysterious places as well.

Some of the city’s very earliest European settlers came from France to establish a settlement on the spot in the 1680s.

Their aim was to promote what they considered a sacred mission to establish a new creed for the New World.

 

 

Those missionaries sought to spread their unique vision with First Nations people but they brought most of the details of the plan to their graves.

Those tombs, deep underneath the seminary, are off limits to all but the custodians.

Among those whose remains lie in the crypt, first established in 1661, is Francois Vachon de Belmont who came from Burgundy, France to fund and operate the mission.

The Grand Seminaire has since remained one of the city’s longest-running institutions and is also home to many other architectural treasures, including an alluring chapel, where around 8,000 priests have been trained.

If there is any off-limits place you'd like to see, just send us an email at [email protected].

 

Series in 2013.

Premièrement, merci d'avoir partager l'information, la participation au forum est toujours apprécié.

 

Je vais avouer que CTV me répugne au plus haut point, une télévision sans contenue et politiquement à l'opposé de mon idéologie. Ceci étant dit, j'ai vu originalement ces vignettes quand elles sont originalement sorties et en les re-regardant encore, je me rend compte à quel point elles sont vide d'information et la journaliste qui fait la Croix du Mont-Royal ou les bureaux de Finance Montréal avec la prison au sous sol est complètement insipide.

 

Par exemple, dans son "reportage" sur la croix, elle ne donne absolument aucune information utile. "Hi, the ladder is shaking, this is the view, thank you", voici un résumé de son reportage. le nombre d'ampoules, son histoire ou, ni même qui à originalement installé la croix (paul de Chomedey). Bordel, ils trouvent important de nous montrer la journaliste en train de se faire photographier du haut de la croix.

 

Quelques uns sont intéressants, mais rien de nouveau au connaisseurs ou que vous n'avez jamais vu ailleurs auparavant. En conclusion, si vous êtes un "history buff" que Montréal n'a pas vraiment de secret pour vous, passez votre tour, il n'a a rien à y voir. Si vous voulez en apprendre d'avantage, utilisez ces pseudo-reportages comme base et passer tout de suite aux autres sources. Vous pourrez naviguer sur le web pendant des heures sur les sites du Musée McCord, de la pointe-à-Callière ou dans les fin fond du site de la Grande Bibliothèque pour de l'information intéressante et facile à trouver.

Perso j'ai seulement vu l'épisode hier au télé.

 

Il s'agissaient de la bibliothèque sous le dôme de l'ancien annexe du Vieux Palais de Justice (à l'ouest de la Place Vauquelin). Ils ont montré les 'modernisations' et la personne-ressource de la Ville expliquait que les modifications étaient complètement réversibles car ils avaient pris des photos avant et conservé les plans. Ils ont aussi montré des cellules sous la bâtisse d'ou des personnes attendaient leur apparition en cours dans le sous-sol (utilisé aujourd'hui pour l'entreposage). On peux espérer que ces espaces seront réouverts au public un jour et exploités à leur plein potentiel touristique. Pour ceux qui ne savent pas, le Maire Drapeau voulait démolir cette bâtisse après la tenue des Olympiques en 76!

 

Je m'attendais pas voir (dans ces vignettes de quelques minutes) des rapportages de haute-qualité ''It is what it is'' mais (malgré les commentaires de la journaliste) j'ai appris des choses et j'ai trouvé ça intéressant (des images vidéo vaillent milles mots) j'ai l'intention de faire un tour sur le site de CTV pour voir certains autres coins inédites de Montréal.
