“Stretching thirty kilometers from the Montmorency River to Cap Tourmente and nestled between the majestic St. Lawrence River and the southern slopes of the Laurentian mountains, La Côte-de-Beaupre is as much a product of its environment as of its inhabitants. Avenue Royale (the historic King’s Highway), traverses the original parishes of L’Ange-Gardien, Château-Richer, Sainte-Anne-de Beaupre and Saint-Joachim, leading the visitor through an architectural treasure-trove of delightful old houses, fine churches and ancient mills.
Famed as the pilgrimage site of St. Anne, the region is also the
home of the world-class Mont Sainte-Anne ski resort and such renowned
parks as Montmorency Falls, Parc du Mont Sainte-Anne and Cap-Tourmente
National Wildlife Preserve Area. With little major industry except the
leading paper mill in Beaupre, La Côte-de-Beaupre, like neighboring
L’Île d’Orleans, enjoys a suburban lifestyle yet remains a heritage and
recreational gem. ”
