Cavalier-du-moulin Park

The Cavalier-du-moulin Park

In 1663, Simon Denys of La Trinité built a mill on a rocky mound called Mount Carmel, on the site of the present Cavalier-du-Moulin park. In 1693, this mill is integrated into a defensive work called Cavalier. By bringing the line of fortifications back to the west in 1755, the rider lost his mill and strategic value at the same time.

While waiting for the tall ships

A nice view of the port, waiting for the tall ships.

I create my first panorama from this nice terrace, well…  years ago. It’s one of my favorite spot no matter the season. In a few weeks, the port will be invaded by tall ships.

To mark the 400th anniversary of Quebec historian Marcel Trudel says without Pierre-Dugua-de-Mons, the founding of the city would have been impossible.

Go for a ride on a bicycle or by foot in the developed trails and cross the 113 metre long suspension footbridge standing 23 metres over the river. Trails and lookout points enhance this exceptional site.
