Discover the spiritual and religious sites of the Montérégie and Eastern Townships regions with this chapter taken from the Ulysses Guide to Spiritual and Religious Journeys in Québec.
This tour begins in Montérégie and extends into the Eastern Townships region, or Cantons-de-l’Est in French. Here we’ll discover cathedrals, abbeys, a pilgrimage destination and even an ashram. You’ll see that most of the places of worship along this route date from the 20th century, reflecting the comparatively late introduction of Francophone Roman Catholic communities in these regions.
In full colour and lavishly illustrated with magnificent photos, this chapter includes detailed descriptions of each sacred site, as well as thematic sidebars for additional information. Practical details are provided for each site, including contact information, admission and opening hours. The chapter also features a precise map showing the itinerary and the location of each site and attraction.
