Québec’s religious communities have played a very important role in our history.
This explains the many churches that can be seen almost everywhere. And it’s really worth going inside them... they’re simply heavenly. Many religious orders run small museums. The monasteries and abbeys are, for some, havens of quiet contemplation. You can also stay at some of them for a few days.
Our churches and religions museums are open year-round.
