ROUTE DE LA NOUVELLE-FRANCE

Welcome to the Route de la Nouvelle-France Website

The road linking Old Québec City to Côte-de-Beaupré is one of North America’s oldest. Originally traced by Mgr. de Laval, it was long traveled by Côte-de-Beaupré residents carrying their goods to the city.

The journey from Old Québec City through Saint-Roch—Québec City’s first true working class neighborhood—and on into Limoilou provides an excellent overview of urban development from the earliest days of New France. Further on, heritage homes bear witness to both French and English culture as well as the creative spirit of Quebecers. Quaint old barns, roadside crosses, procession chapels, and half-buried root cellars evoke the Côte-de-Beaupré region’s agricultural past and rural character. Travel this road and discover four centuries of living history.
