Augustine Monastery Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
Founded by Augustinian nuns in the 1640s, this monastery is best known for its hospital, the Hôtel-Dieu, which still operates today. The church, designed by Pierre Émond in 1800, features a Neoclassical facade adorned with a sculpted Ionic portal. Highlights of the interior, crafted by Thomas Baillairgé, include the high-altar tabernacle, the retable and the basket-handle wooden vault. Opened in 1958, the Musée des Augustines de l'Hôtel-Dieu de Québec (Augustine Museum) presents a collection of objects and artworks tracing the Augustinian Nuns' history and heritage. The museum includes one of the foremost collections of paintings dating back to the time of New France.
