              Rue Saint-Paul


There are at least two well known ghosts on rue Saint-Paul, in the heart of Old Montreal.

The first is said to be the ghost of a slave named Angelique, who was hung for apparently setting her master’s home on fire in 1734. The fire spread and much of the then small city was destroyed.

Her ghost is said to wonder this street, wearing what she hung with - a white chemise with the word incendiaire, or arsonist.

The next ghost said to haunt the street is a phantom carriage with horses and driver. It is said to vanish when one tries to climb into the carriage. It is unknown who this phantom driver may be, or from what time period they date from. Carriages are still used in this area for tourists to view the streets of old Montreal in a unique way
