  • Very interesting guided tour of the House of Alphonse-Desjardins is located in the heart of the old Lévis. There are several original pieces that belonged to the family of Alphonse and Dorimène Desjardins supplemented by other pieces of period furniture on loan from museums. The guide has described with passion the the daily life of the couple, the career in Quebec City and Ottawa of Alphonse Desjardins (while Dorimène took care of the Fund and his family in Lévis), the Foundation of the first credit on the same places (small office near the main entrance) and the expansion of cooperative savings and credit in the rest of Quebec as well as in the French-speaking Canada and the part East of United States , but also of the important role of the Church (especially Mgr Louis - Nazaire Bégin, and the priests of the College de Lévis) in the success of this adventure native of Lévis. A visit that all Quebecers must do at least once in his life. For lovers of hiking, complete the circuit of walking tour of the old Levis with a tour of the Mont-Marie cemetery where you can collect you in front of the tombstone of Alphonse and Dorimène Desjardins and several other major levisiens.

  • Perfect activity to do as a couple, alone or with family. Very nice to know the beginnings of Desjardins, how Mr. Desjardins and his wife operated the first caisse populaire. Activity interesting and especially made a visit at Christmas it's magic.
