We only had a couple of hours to spend so I thought it would be nice to show Ile-de-la-Visitation to my sister from Europe. It is a very quiet place, right on the river. 11 old houses well preserved, walking paths to visit the island, the road is strictly reserved for residents, pic-nic sites available and, of course, the old mill. They did not renovate it, only secure the ruins. Very interesting. There is a small museum and an affordable restaurant with a nice terrasse close to the entry of the site. It's a charming place, people who live there are very lucky. We loved our afternoon.

We had our sunday morning walk there and i can tell you that this is a hidden gem...the park is just minutes from downtown and it is not so crowded like MountRoyal Park. You can walk from a good hour and a half through pathways that follow the Saint Laurent river, you can have a glimpse from a hydroelectric plant, amuse yourself with hundreds of ducks that use this spot as their temporary shelter during the summer and even have a nice lunch at the parks bistro....it really worth a visit.

Looking for an excursion? Couples, family or even alone... this island will be a good pick! It is near a river so you get pretty sceneries.

The church at the edge is the oldest in the city. It's very nice. The catacombs below are cool. The park is a fun walk. It's outside, there's a bike path. It's fun.
