Grand Séminaire de Montréal

Grand Séminaire de Montréal Review

Education goes way back at the Grand Séminaire. In the mid-1600s, St. Marguerite Bourgeoys used one of the two stone towers in the garden as a school for First Nations (Native American) girls while she and her nuns lived in the other. The 1840 seminary buildings behind the towers are now used by men studying for the priesthood. In summer there are free guided tours of the towers, the extensive gardens, and the college's beautiful Romanesque chapel. 2015 celebrates the seminary's 175th anniversary, with activities focusing on youth and multiculturalism.
