Quebec City Retreat: Stay at Le Monastère des Augustines
This historical retreat is known for its unique approach to wellness. In 1639, three Augustinian nuns travelled to Quebec City to open the first hospital in the new world north of Mexico. For centuries, generations of nuns did amazing work as nurses, residing in the adjoining monastery. Now, with a declining population, the Augustinian nuns have decided to continue their legacy by opening the space to the public as a wellness retreat and hotel. Located in the historic wings of the monastery, the newly renovated Monastère des Augustines gives renewed purpose to this heritage property. Learn more and plan your stay here.
