The Neptune Inn

Walk down the length of the Petit Champlain and you come to a break in the buildings and, painted on the end side of one is a large, colourful mural: The Neptune Inn.

The inn itself, however, was actually located on the corner of Côte de la Montagne and rue Sault au Matelot. It was there that this popular eating and drinking establishments of the early 1800s, stood. According to Irish journalist Edward Allen, who toured Canada with a certain Captain Blake, the Neptune was a favourite haunt of sea captains passing through the port.

Now, of course, all that’s left is a brightly colourful depiction of what the inn might have looked like, back in the day.
