Le Monastère des Augustines
- Québec City, QC Canada
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.
