The "Old Courthouse"



Montréal City Hall

Three Courthouses

The Château Ramezay


For centuries now, this is where different, and often conflicting, visions of the city have been championed, where decisions have been made and trials heard. The times have changed, of course. Today there are women sitting as judges and on City Council, and nearly as many couples come to the Courthouse for divorces as for marriage licences.

But the weight of the solid stone surroundings still lends gravity to the political and legal proceedings.
