Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts Heritage Tour

Description


Travelling the streets in the centre of Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, you will find yourself immersed in a world that grew with the tourism industry of the early 20th century. From village architecture to the grand villas, this BaladoDiscovery offers glimpses into the history of this town renowned for its scenery and its fresh, pure air.

The first ten points of interest make up the walking tour as mapped, with kilometre markers. Points 11 and 12, the Sanatorium and the Train Station, are located a little beyond downtown, and are not part of the walking tour per se. The return trip to the first one is one kilometer, while it is 1.5 kilometer for the second one.

All along the walk, be sure to have a look at the historical panels to complement your interactive experience.

You can also extend your enjoyment of the town’s heritage treasures with a bicycle tour around Lac des Sables. This intermediate-level ride lasting around 60 to 90 minutes will take you past eight more themed panels exploring aspects of tourism development, built heritage, and daily life here during the 20th century. You’ll find more details later in this BaladoDiscovery, at Point 4.
