Entrance Hall and the Parlors Wing
The monastery has changed over the centuries. Sections were removed and new wings were built. Also, sections have been destroyed by fire, or damaged by nature's whims or by cannonballs. But the nuns have always taken care of their home.The big red door on 18 Donnacona Street is now the main entrance of the monastery, but it was not so before the 19th century. The original entrance was close to the St. Augustin staircase. Perhaps you will see it during your visit.
Today, the entrance leads to the Parlor wing. The parlor was the only place in the monastery where the nuns could have any contact with the outside. They even had to speak to their visitors through a heavy grill.
