A Modern Oasis of Wellness and Peace

At the heart of Old Québec City, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where history breathes life into cobblestone streets and ancient architecture, Le Monastère des Augustines stands as a haven of peace, culture, and wellness. Our journey began almost four centuries ago when the Augustinian Sisters laid the foundations of the Canadian healthcare system with a holistic approach to health that still resonates today.

Sensitively restored and thoughtfully redesigned, Le Monastère is now a secular destination. Our commitment is to offer visitors from all cultures and spiritual backgrounds a unique journey toward wellness while directly connecting with the remarkable heritage of the Augustinian Sisters.

Monastery Stay: Immerse in Timeless Serenity

At Le Monastère des Augustines, tradition and modernity harmoniously coexist. Former cloister rooms have been meticulously restored with your comfort in mind, in a setting conducive to relaxation. Here, travelers can disconnect from the modern world’s chaos and reconnect with their inner selves.

We offer a wide range of wellness activities anchored in the four pillars of holistic health. Daily meditative walks, yoga sessions, massages, and spa treatments provide a rejuvenating experience within a safe, welcoming, and empowering environment.

Our on-site restaurant, Le Vivoir, celebrates the art of mindful eating. With a focus on fresh, locally sourced ingredients, our menus are designed to tantalize your taste buds and promote overall well-being. We believe that delectable, healthy dishes are an integral part of your wellness journey.

Living History: A Cultural Immersion

Le Monastère is not just a place to stay; it is a living museum of history and culture. Our classified heritage building serves as a tangible backdrop to your journey of relaxation. Explore our museum’s permanent exhibit, which showcases carefully preserved artifacts narrating the captivating evolution of healthcare over the last four centuries. Further immerse yourself in the past by delving into our UNESCO-recognized archive, a vital facet of your historical voyage.
