Château Ramezay : Michelin's recommendations
Situated across from City Hall, this squat, fieldstone residence (1705) is a lovely example of early-18C domestic architecture. Constructed for Claude de Ramezay, 11th governor of Montreal during the French regime, the building has undergone several renovations yet remains relatively unchanged in appearance. It was acquired by the British government to serve as the official gubernatorial residence until 1849. Restored and transformed into a museum in 1895, the interior presents Montreal's economic, political and social history. The highlight is the exquisite, hand-carved mahogany panelling produced in 1725 in Nantes, France.
