Do you believe in the paranormal?
Hosted by professional Ghost-hunter Dominique Desormeaux of 13 Spirits Paranormal, Haunted Montreal’s “Paranormal Investigation – Old Sainte Antoine Cemetery” takes guests on a dark adventure into the mysterious world of ghost-hunting.
From 1799-1855, Sainte Antoine Cemetery was the site of approximately 70,000 burials, many of them interred in mass graves due to a series of Cholera epidemics that struck the city. In this Catholic burial ground, all sorts of atrocities occurred. Doctors autopsied bodies out in the open. Priests advised pregnant women to receive the horrible “infant baptism” operation. People were buried alive.
Today, the old cemetery is hidden just underneath two of Montreal’s most stunning and popular urban parks – Dorchester Square and Place du Canada. Due to the atrocious history that unfolded in the old Sainte Antoine Cemetery, today these parks are a major hotspot for paranormal activity in Downtown Montreal.
Guests will learn strategies and techniques to locate and communicate with spirits. Ghost-hunting tools such as Dowsing Rods, EMF Readers, Temperatures Guns and other devices will be made available to reach out to the many deranged spirits that haunt the Old Sainte Antoine Cholera Cemetery.
Not only will guests learn about the cemetery’s ghosts and paranormal activities, but also a haunted statue and the haunted buildings that surround the cemetery’s urban environment, such as the Sun Life Building, Old Windsor Hotel, Chateau Champlain Hotel, St George’s Anglican Church and Marie-Reine-du Monde Cathedral and Basilica.
This otherworldly experience is designed for those interested in the paranormal and ghost-hunting, as seen on television programs like Rencontres Paranormales, Most Haunted, TAPS’ Ghost Hunters and many others. It is also popular for those keen to learn more about Montreal’s hidden and deranged history.
