Routenouvellefrance YetpzkoksdThis signalized scenic route connecting Old Québec and Côte-de-Beaupré was mapped out by Monseigneur de Laval and formerly used by the inhabitants of Côte-de-Beaupré to transport food supplies to downtown Québec. The crossing of downtown Québec, Saint-Roch (the first real working class area in Québec), and finally the Limoilou district illustrates the evolution of the urban network since the beginning of New France. The heritage houses illustrate the architecture of France and England as well as the imaginative Québécois approach. An old barn, a roadside cross, a chapel, and a half-buried produce cellar dot this road and remind us of the farming past and rural character of Côte-de-Beaupré. Discover four centuries of busy life!
