Old Longueuil

Old Longueuil (French: Vieux-Longueuil) is a historic neighbourhood located in the borough of the same name, in the city of Longueuil, Quebec, Canada. There is not a universal definition of what exactly constitute the Old Longueuil neighbourhood, but it always includes at least the territory corresponding to the pre-1961 city of Longueuil.

Old Longueuil was named a heritage district by the city in 1993, and features 450 buildings built before 1945. Many historic buildings are found in this district, such as the Co-Cathedral of Saint-Antoine-de-Padoue, the ruins of Fort Longueuil, and Saint Mark's Anglican Church. Rue Saint-Charles, one block inland from the Saint Lawrence River, is the main street in this neighbourhood and features many small businesses, among them restaurants, bars, and corner stores.
