The “Vieux Séminaire”, the oldest building in Montréal, was erected between 1684 and 1687, then extended 20 years later by the Messrs of Saint-Sulpice who ran the Notre-Dame parish and were “seigneurs” of the island of Montréal for nearly two centuries. This historical structure is a prime example of the institutional architecture in New France. Its clock, which dates back to 1701, could possibly be the oldest of its kind in North America. Building is not open to public.
