“Oh! What beautiful meadows!” These words, pronounced by sailors admiring the coast, are believed to have given Côte-de-Beaupré its name at the dawn of the 17th century. The region’s breathtaking pastures are the cradle of Quebec agriculture.
From everyday life in New France to the development of religious tourism, and from the lumber industry to winter sports—without forgetting the many figures and legends that have left their mark on the region—Côte-de-Beaupré has a captivating history.
Discover the natural riches and heritage nestled here between river and mountain. Along the way, you’ll admire the stunning Montmorency Falls and the exceptional landscape of Cap-Tourmente, and enjoy a superb view of the St. Lawrence River and Île d’Orléans.
