About this Event

Old Montreal is the city’s most haunted neighborhood. Since colonial times, the area has witnessed countless horrors – genocide, warfare, plagues, disasters, heinous crimes, tragedies and shocking deaths.


These dark episodes ripple through time, leaving deranged legends, haunted history – and a plethora of ghosts and paranormal activity.


Old Montreal is a steeped in history. With its cobblestone streets and timeworn historic buildings, some dating back to the 1600s, it is a popular neighborhood for tourists and residents alike.


However, as the site of colonial establishment, it also has an extremely dark and disturbing side.


Step back in time into Montreal’s most historic neighbourhood.


The Haunted Old Montreal ghost walk visits historic locations such as the Place d’Armes, Rue St. Paul, the Courthouse District, Place Vauquelin, Champs-de-Mars, Jacques Cartier Square and the infamous Chateau Ramezay. There areas are all rife with paranormal activity and ghost-sightings.


Learn the deranged story of Marie-Joseph Angélique, a slave woman who was hanged during the New France era for allegedly starting a devastating fire. Despite there being no witnesses, she confessed under torture and was then executed.


Hear about the fires at the Hotel-Dieu Hospital and the ghost of Jeanne Le Ber, a Catholic recluse who frequently self-flagellated.


Visit the site of Montreal’s first British J*il, the infamous Montreal Pr*son. While today only the cells remain beneath the historic Place Vauquelin, the area experiences a lot of haunted activity.


The adjacent Champs-de-Mars was the most popular site in the British Empire to witness a live execution. The sloping geography and amazing views of criminals being hanged provided the ideal setting for parents to educate their children about morality during picnic lunches.


Discover the Chateau Ramezay, an 18th Century museum where paranormal activity unfolds and the ghost of a former warden named Miss O’Dowd terrifies clients with her deranged antics.


Led by a professional actor and storyteller, this ghost tour is sure to please ghost hunters, history buffs and Hallowe’en lovers with its creepy tales of paranormal activity and the ghostly spirits that haunt the heart of Old Montreal.


The Haunted Old Montreal Montreal ghost tour begins in the Parc de la Presse on the corner of Sainte-Antoine Street and Côte de la Place d'Armes, just south of Metro Place d'Armes. Please meet your guide at least 10 minutes before the tour starts.


This event is also offered as a private tour.
