St. Lawrence River Shrines

The river sanctuaries are a group of five historic places of worship. Grand and imposing, simple and understated or dating back many decades, they all bear witness to religious devotion and the great talent of their creators.
Starting in Kahnawake, a Mohawk community, the circuit passes through Longueuil and Boucherville, ending at Varennes. Explore five shrines where visual art and architecture create a pilgrimage that will bring tradition and history to life right before your eyes.
Come with family or friends and follow this route for a one-of-a-kind experience that is both spiritual and cultural. Savour the impressive beauty of the unique heritage along the majestic St. Lawrence River, yours to enjoy less than an hour from Montreal.
