Montreal – Pierre De Clavet House

401, rue Bonsecours

Right at the corner of St-Paul Street and Bonsecours, you are in front of the Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours Chapel.

The house built in 1770 has the name of the first occupant, architectural features draw our attention: the wood window panes, the continuous stone side wall which integrates the chimney is uncommon.

De Clavet’s personal story ended tragically with the shipwreck of the ship he was traveling on. His journey to New France was a tumultuous one. Some say it is haunted.   After his death, the house was sold and became a guest house, a convenience store, a museum, a restaurant and a guest house. Hollywood guests have stayed at this hotel.
