Many heritage structures and sites can be seen such as a flour mill and the first pilgrimage site in the province of Quebec.

Along this road there is 22 vegetable cellars and many bread ovens. You will learn about the king's daughters' life with their families.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our day with Diane was the highlight of our trip. She went out of her way to show us the actual house my ancestors lived in. She did the research on her own. She is like a personal friend showing you her city.
