The western suburb of Québec (the Sainte-Foy—Sillery—Cap-Rouge) harbors many patrimonial treasures to discover.
Along the chemin Saint-Louis or the roads near the St. Lawrence River, parks, old villas and historic houses are evidence of the life of great English owners in Québec during the XIXth century or of the first Jesuit mission founded in New France. Themed exhibitions are also featured at many of these establishments.
You can also visit the Université Laval, the first French catholic university in America, first founded in the middle of Old Québec by Monseigneur de Laval in 1663. The musée de géologie and the Roger Van den Hende botanical Garden are among the attractions not to be missed.
