Site patrimonial du calvaire-d’Huberdeau

A popular pilgrimage location

An important element of Quebec religious heritage

Located on the shores of the Rivière Rouge, Huberdeau stands out by its calvary, built on a hill to the west of the village on land originally used by a wood merchant. The initial wood calvary built in 1892 was replaced by a road of crosses between 1910 and 1920.

The vast grassy and wooded territory comprises 27 statues approximately two metres high, a cross, and the Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes grotto. 

Stately crosses and statues

The statues and massive crosses made of bronze ironwork were created by the Union artistique internationale, a religious art workshop located in France. 

While the site only features 5 of the 14 stations of the Passion of the Christ, this is because some of the boats carrying the statues sank during the trip, which took place during World War I.

A breathtaking view

The Site patrimonial du calvaire-d’Huberdeau was designated a heritage site in 1997. It constitutes an important element of Quebec religious heritage.

With the renewed enthusiasm for the pilgrimage practice across Europe and Quebec, the location is especially popular on the first Sunday of the month of August to celebrate the calvary. It is also known for its breathtaking view of the Vallée de la Rouge and the outline of the majestic Tremblant mountain. 

Open year-round.
