903 De Lorimier Avenue

In the very heart of the former Pied-du-Courant prison – where more than 1300 Patriotes were imprisoned and, in somecases executed – you can explore the history of the Rebellion of 1837-1838. Discover a moment in history that is indelibly stamped on Quebec’s collective memory, and let yourself be transported by the Patriotes’ spirit of freedom and democracy.
