In terms of historic buildings I personally believe that Guelph rivals if not surpasses any city in Ontario. It really is beautiful, and is one of the reasons that I chose to spend the remainder of my Ontario there. It also reminds me of a miniature Winnipeg, with the historic buildings, the layout and the rivers. The Church did in fact turn the convent into a museum. A reno/resto that turned out quite nice.
