Trois-Rivieres The Vielle Prison, built in 1816, closed as a prison in 1986, and now open for tours. The guidebook points to the nine chimney stacks as evidence of the British concern for the welfare of the inmates. The tour guide thought otherwise.

The guidebook also noted that this building features some of 'the best surviving examples of Palladianism in Quebec.' Palladianism? So I looked it up! Travel! The Internet! A match made in heaven. Click here to learn about Palladianism.
