Founded in 1854 and inaugurated in 1855, Notre-Dame-des-Neiges Cemetery contains precious heritage resources to which the municipal, provincial and federal governments have attributed various historical statutes.

The funerary monuments are real stone archives. Several commemorative works have become true historical pieces, such as the Monument aux Patriotes, for example. The many works of art installed in the mausoleums also constitute a religious and artistic heritage of choice.

Also, we have several historic buildings, such as the Administrative Pavilion, the Notre-Dame-de-la-Résurrection Chapel, the Simon-Lacombe House ... that draw the attention of visitors by their cachet.

Here are some monuments and buildings that are worth a look.
