Hospital Plaza – A Former French Seminary

Hospital Plaza, named after its most recent use as a medical centre, was originally a seminary incorporating an impressive chapel which remains to this day. The seminary was built in the early 1800s in a square format creating a quadrangle courtyard in the centre.

The seminary later became property of the state and was put into use as a hospital during World War II. This use as a hospital remained until the 2010s when the facility closed down.

Our Visit
we arrived and had a look around the perimeter looking for an access point. We realised we had somehow overshot our mark when Proj3ct M4yh3m stuck his head over a wall and disturbed a somewhat disgruntled French chap tending to his garden! A brief argument ensued, half in French and half in English until both parties realised they had no idea what the other was talking about, so we retraced our steps until we found a more suitable access point – this time into the correct property!
