Château Ramezay, a Historic Site and Museum of Montréal was selected in collaboration with UNESCO, as one of the 1001 historic sites that you must see.

Built in 1705 by Pierre Couturier for Claude de Ramsey then Governor General of Montreal, Château Ramezay became the home of Governor Generals in 1773-84 and housed the Administrative Council in 1839.

In 1895, it became the Museum of the Antiquarian Society and was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1929.

‘Step Into History’ and view in an enchanted walk the Governor’s Gardens in the Style of New France.

Multilingual sound panels guide visitors through the garden,  where a variety of activities and tours take place throughout the year.

In summer, a courtyard café overlooks the garden.
