  • This Abbey is located near the city of Magog. It is a place of worship (monks) who is worth to be visited for the architecture and the beauty of the surrounding landscape. It's very quiet and we can't move around. The monks are more than discreet. Inside the Abbey, is the silence that prevails. There is a shop in the basement where they sell the Abbey and the local products. Outside, it has a beautiful orchard and trails that can be surveyed in a spirit of reverence. For those who love nature and peace, it is a must-see even if we're not very religious.
