Calling all architecture enthusiasts, this tour is for you!
From June 22 to September 2, 2019, discover Le Monastère des Augustines’ exceptional architecture and learn about its history from the 17th century to today. Walk the historic wings of the beautifully restored building, which has received several prizes and mentions, and immerse yourself in the locale’s atmosphere.
A haven of peace in the heart of the city, Le Monastère des Augustines is part of the historic Hôtel-Dieu de Québec monastery, one of the most important classified heritage sites within Old Quebec — itself a world heritage site. Respectfully restored, the original buildings blend harmoniously with the new construction’s contemporary architecture.
The site’s heritage value stems from its European architectural tradition, perimeter wall, vast garden dating to 17th century New France, and to the powerful social role it played right from the beginning.
The ambitious Le Monastère des Augustines restoration project has garnered numerous awards and distinctions highlighting the excellence of its architectural design, as well as its emphasis on the location’s heritage nature.
