Located on the island of Montreal, the Prison des Patriotes is a place of memory that cannot be ignored. A true repressive symbol of an unfulfilled emancipatory will, it reminds us of the many Patriots who were incarcerated there between 1837 and 1840 as political prisoners and where 12 of them were hanged for high treason against the British Crown. At the heart of this exceptional patriot site, a new permanent exhibition entitled "Between armed resistance and insurrection, Chapter 2" pays tribute to them and explains in particular their conditions of incarceration. During your visit, you will also discover several patriotic artefacts presented in an original way.
