What travelers say:

): For around $10 or less, you can explore this famous historical site, which was first built in 1895 and contains about 500 years of Quebec history. One of my favorite exhibits is an “automobile” from ca. 1900, built by the engineer George Bouton. Known as a “face-to-face” model, since the seats were constructed to face each other, Bouton’s invention was purchased by Montrealer Ucal-Henri Dandurand in 1903 and became the first licensed automobile in the province of Quebec. The Governor’s Garden was named after Claude de Ramezay, who, after arriving in Montréal in 1705, commissioned a home to be constructed on Notre-Dame street and to include an orchard and two gardens, one for cooking and one for pleasure strolls. The garden grounds, in the back of Château Ramezay, are still maintained and gorgeous to gander at around May or June.
