Fort Chambly National Historic Site

Historical reenactment at Fort Chambly National Historic Site

Roughly 30 kilometres southeast of Montréal, Fort Chambly rises proudly at the foot of the Richelieu River rapids. Built in 1711 to defend the colony, this stone fortification was preceded by three wooden forts.

Come savour the cuisine of residents of New France while discovering garrison life. The fort has preserved the main elements of its original architecture so that you truly feel like you’re walking in the steps of a French infantryman from the 18th century.
