A Cloister, A School, A Hospital
The dome of the Ursuline monastery is certain to catch your eye, as you travel through Trois-Rivières. Towering proudly over Old Trois-Rivières, it is a reminder of the Ursulines’ three hundred year presence and invites you to come and discover a building that has served as a cloister, a school and a hospital.
Immerse yourself in the life of the Ursulines, who have been educating young girls in the city for more than 300 years. Moving testimonials recall a time when walls surrounded the Ursuline Monastery. Let yourself be inspired by the stunning architecture in the chapel, in an atmosphere conducive to meditation.
Become a student of the Ursulines and let yourself be carried away in the Nacelle de Sainte Ursule. During the summer, tour part of the Collège Marie-de-l’Incarnation and follow in the footsteps of thousands of young girls. Perhaps, you will even detect the lingering odour of molasses and peanut butter on bread.
At the museum, enter the first hospital in Trois-Rivières, the old Hôtel-Dieu, built by the Ursulines. Each year, unveil another facet of the rich history of the Ursulines.
