Le Monastere des Augustines The Municipal, Provincial and Canadian Federal Governments, under the pro bono guidance of several of Quebec City’s most distinguished hoteliers, invested nearly $60 million into a literally stunning restoration of this historic monastery in the heart of Old Quebec. Here, in the 1600s, on a hilltop inside the Walled City, the Augustinian nuns invented a system... More

The most fascinating hotel that I have ever stayed in. An old hospital converted into a luxiourous hotel. It houses a spa and hospital museum. There are many activities provided and a incredible restaurant.

Old Quebec has a lot of religious historical sites to visit, and this one is worth the trek off the beaten path. I really enjoyed seeing how the monastery functioned through the exhibits; some of the medical ones were... interesting in a morbid fascination kind of way.

Absolutely amazing! I was worried because I work on the road and sometimes, I am just not able to stick my head out of the screen, I thought they would have very strict policies about it, because of the nature of the hotel. That wasn't the case, everyone is super friendly and respectful, most of the staff members are very... More

This stop was highlighted on our walking tour and the history of the St. Augustine nuns was interesting. The architecture is a must see.

This museum guided tour of the first American hospital north of Mexico is a must see! Our guide was superb. She made the almost 400 years of history rich, accessible, alive. The building itself, is worth viewing but when paired with the story of these devoted sisters, their work, and the thousands of artifacts, it is breathtaking.

I didn't expect much from this visit because I'm not a museum fan. However, with my friends from Switzerland, we learned much more than I expected. I especially appreciated the role the nuns have played before there were enough doctors in the early centuries of the colony. The medical artifacts as well the testimonials of elderly nuns surprised me in... More

This facility fits perfectly in Old Quebec. The region itself is a museum experience where you can learn about the history of our country. The facility is the site where the sisters founded their nursing and hospital practice during the mid 1600's. It's like sleeping in a museum. The architects designed a building around the existing structure, so it combines... More
