The Heritage Interpretation Centre - La Grande Ferme
Innovative interpretation activities are offered for school and social groups as well as groups of adults.
The Heritage Interpretation Centre - La Grande Ferme, located in Saint-Joachim, features a house which was built in 1866 and which is a recognised historical monument. It is located near Cap Tourmente, on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River. The site has been inhabited since 1640 and it has been a witness to the historic evolution of Québec. The first church of Saint-Joachim was built in 1685 and destroyed in 1759, but vestiges have survived through the years. The centre offers interpretation programs tailored to the needs of various groups. A range of activities is also available: guided tours in a horse-drawn wagon, theatre presentations and specialised workshops in architecture, ethnology and archaeology. In addition to the regular packages, the Heritage Interpretation Centre – La Grande Ferme can also provide activities that meet your specific needs and expectations. Rooms can be reserved for family gatherings, special occasions, meetings or training sessions. A special exhibition awaits the visitors during the summer months.
