Prepare yourself to be amazed by the presence of this natural site, both strategic and magnificent, where the men of the regiment Carignan-Salières landed and settled in 1665. Following the path of these defenders, these pioneers of New France, you will learn more about their arrival in the colony, the construction of the fortification next to the Richelieu’s rapids and the expeditions leading to peace treaties with the Native American Nations.
