1687 saw the completion of Montreal's Saint-Sulpice Seminary and its garden, and ever since the public has never been allowed inside. Literally shielded by a stone wall on Notre Dame, only members of the seminary were allowed inside, until now.

Us regular folk are still barred entry into the Old Montreal secret garden, but Radio-Canada got an inside look thanks to Gerald McNichols-Tétreault, the man in charge of the site's restoration. The rest of us will have to make do with the other St. Sulpice.

Only pics of the garden were released, along with exterior shots of the Sulpician Seminary, but it's still pretty cool to an arguably ancient religious complex that has largely remained untouched by prying eyes and hands. Check it out below.
