Lucien Saulnier Building on Notre-Dame Street in Montreal, Canada

Across the street is the Lucien Saulnier Building. Nicknamed the Old Palace, the Neoclassical building opened in 1856 as a courthouse. The façade features six fluted columns with Ionic capitals. Free tours are available. Édifice Lucien-Saulnier temporarily serves as Montreal’s City Hall while the neighboring Hôtel de Ville is being renovated. Interestingly, architect Henri-Maurice Perrault designed both structures.
