There's a lot of old stories in the Old Port
Our tour guide, Madeline, was certainly in a festive, "spirited" mood. Dressed up in period costume, she brought centuries old decedents back to life with her animated storytelling. Our evening began outside the Museum of Archaeology, on the exact site of where the city of Montreal was founded over 350 years ago. As you can imagine, with so many centuries of history, Montreal has racked up quite a few murders and mishaps and Madeline was keen to share many gruesome details of torture and torment in New France.
One of our stops included The Auberge, often described as the most haunted restaurant in Montreal and the site of a notorious arsonist's fire. If you look at my photo below, you'll see a curious blue shape floating in the middle of the picture - did I capture the ghostly spirit of an 8 year old dead girl?
I would highly recommend a night of ghostly adventures to anyone visiting Montreal but especially solo travellers. It was the perfect night out and a great way to get better acquainted with the city - and I met a few new friends (the human kind - not ghosts!) along the way.
