In front of the modern courthouse (1971) stands a sculpture by Charles Daudelin, entitled "Allégrocube." A bit farther on is a monument to the daring Marguerite Bourgeoys.

Rue Notre-Dame East

An eloquent conclusion to your tour: side by side, the 1925 courthouse, a 1913 skyscraper and a house built in 1811 in the French Régime style.

The "New Courthouse"
dating from the 1920s, gave up its original vocation to house music and drama conservatories. It will soon return to its roots, however, as it is to house the court of appeal. It is now called the Cormier Building, in honour of its designer, Ernest Cormier.
