"Chateau Ramezay" Château Ramezay - Historic Site and Museum of Montreal Tip by zChris

  Chateau Ramezay
by zChris

The <b>Chateau Ramezay</b> was an 18th century minifortress where the governor of Montréal lived. It was later used as the headquarters for American troops during their occupation of Montréal and as a history museum in the late 19th century. It has since been restored to its original 18th century appearance. Gracing Vieux Montréal with its Norman castle design, the Chateau is now one of the area's most popular attractions. Plus, the view of the Hotel de Ville is unrivaled from within its gates.
