    A few kilometres out of Quebec, we stopped by the St. Lawrence river, in a wide area dominated by a big and modern church.

    It's a famous pilgrimage destination since a long time, still keeping some of the old small churches in the surrounding gardens.

    If you are driving down from Montreal, I would suggest going on Highway 40 until Trois-Rivières, and then get on the Chemin du Roy (Route 138, you'll see blue signs on the Highway). Dating back to New France, it is one of the oldest road in Quebec and it will take you through the Portneuf region and its many picturesque villages. You can stop for lunch at the bistro La Faim du Roy in Deschambault-Grondines (234 Chemin du Roy, 418-286-2468), go for a walk in Cap-Sante... and don't forget to bring your camera!

    Cap Sante

    If you are on the Chemin du Roy, don't miss Cap Sante and it's historic Vieux-Chemin: characterized as one of the 20 most beautiful streets in Canada.

    This street is full of typical historic country houses, such as this one.

    On our way back from Quebec to Montreal, instead of taking the highway, we took le chemin du Roy (King's roadway) , which is a beautiful road to take to see the countryside. Lots of people make this a biking trip.
    Plenty of pictures to come...
