This week, discover Notre-Dame-des-Pins

This week, discover Notre-Dame-des-Pins

January 17, 2013

Did you know that a long time ago, in the 17th century Father Druillettes called Notre-Dame-des-Pins the « tree cluster » ? This part of the Seigniory belonged to many families but its Chaussegros de Léry that introduced its first inhabitants in 1772. In the second half of the 19th century, the community got a boost when gold was found in the Gilbert River in 1846, even before gold was found in the Klondike. You will be charmed by the warmth of the villagers.

In this municipality you will see and have the chance to go accross the longest covered bridge in the province.  Constructed in 1929, you can enjoy a picnic by it. The Gilbert River reaches the Chaudière River in Notre-Dame-des-Pins, where many islands are sculptured by the water. Merchants sell local handcraft and antiques. Here you will also find camping grounds where you can enjoy playing outdoors.
