Sacred architecture

Wendake (église historique)

Notre-Dame-de-Lorette Church is closely linked to the Huron-Wendat Nation. The current chapel was built by the Wendat around 1730 on the model of Santa Casa de Loreto in Italy, under the direction of a Jesuit missionary, Father Pierre-Daniel Richer. On June 10, 1862, a fire broke out in the nearby paper mill. The fire spread to the bell tower and a large part of the roof was ravaged by the flames. Fortunately, it was possible to save the treasure composed of pieces of furniture, goldsmith's work and liturgical objects dating from the mission. A few years later, it was rebuilt and, at the beginning of the twentieth century, a side chapel (also called Jubé of the Sisters) and a sacristy was added. Since 1957, it has been classified as a historic monument by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Quebec and, in 1981, was recognized by the Department of Canadian Heritage as an architectural and historical monument of national importance.

Information

Parc linéaire de la rivière Saint-Charles (Wendake)

Proud heir to this civilization that guided the destiny of North-East America for centuries, the community moved to Wendake in 1697, on a site first known as Roreke. Nestled on the edge of the canyon of the Akiawenrahk River (Saint-Charles), the village is set back from the old city and Wendat capital of Stadacona, now Quebec, and gives easy access to the territories of practice of customary activities, the Nionwentsïo. Wendat develops a dynamic and prosperous living environment that, from yesterday to today, remains contemporary and open to its environment, while drawing from its roots. Children of Donnaconna, Sastaretsi, Hatironta and Kondiaronk, the Huron-Wendat now form a Nation as a First Nation, with inherent and constitutional collective rights, and aim to form a balanced society in which each member has an equal opportunity to participate. to express its individual potential, in a safe and sustainable environment, on reserve and on its ancestral territory called Nionwentsïo, where its spiritual, cultural, physical and mental well-being can flourish and where basic and community human needs can be satisfied.

Several industries, including footwear and textiles, are helping the city out of the economic slump created by the loss of shipyards (Jobin, 1947, Côté, 1999). On the Saint-Charles River watershed, there are numerous industries: the Bell brothers' ceramics factory, near the Saint-Charles River; that of the Dion, at L'Ancienne-Lorette and several mills built near the Lorette Falls (Jobin, 1947). The hydraulic power of this fall, now renamed Kabir Kouba according to its Amerindian name, will be highly coveted for nearly 200 years. It favored the construction of the flour mill by the Jesuits (1731-1853), the Russel paper mill (1854-1862), the paper mill Smith (1862-1870), the paper mill Reid (1870-1900) and power station (1904-1918) (Jobin, 1947, Corporation of Falaise Park and Kabir Kouba Fall, 2011).

    Parc linéaire des rivières Saint-Charles et du Berger

    D'une distance de 35 km, un sentier pédestre qui va du centre-ville de Québec jusqu'au Lac-Saint-Charles. . .

    Même s'il est utilisé par de nombreuses personnes, j'ai l'impression que ce sentier demeure inconnu d'une partie importante de la population de Québec. N'essayez pas de parcourir la distance dans la même journée, à moins d'être un expert. Vaut mieux le faire par bout surtout si vous vous rendez en auto et que vous devez faire la distance choisie aller-retour.
