My favorite buildings in the city, I think it's actually an architecture school now. You can walk around and inside the walls but you can't get into the buildings themselves that I could find.

This is no longer a seminary but I loved the design, even though I was unable to enter the buildings. It is such a classic and must have educated many Jesuit priests, the intellectuals of the Catholic - universal - Church.

Enjoyed the tour of this sprawling campus. Orginally a Jesuit school for priest that converted into Catholic boy's school/college after English took over town. There has been an English (protestant)/French (Catholic) tension for centuries. This is located a few feet from Funicular in upper town....More
