Rue de l'Hôpital takes its name (and direction) from the early days of Ville-Marie, when it was one of the paths converging on the Hôtel-Dieu hospital. The colony's first hospital, located in the centre of the settlement, also served as a refuge in case of attack. And there was no shortage of attacks... This block has been transformed over and over again, and is lined with buildings devoted to the stock market, shipping, telegraphy, technological innovation and good food... a curious mixture of functions, reflected in the diversity of symbols, materials and shapes.


Down to the water

Business and stone


And fires!
