Northeast of Montreal, in the southern Lanaudière region, lies a city with an exceptionally rich historical heritage: L’Assomption.
Going back to the time when First Nations peoples were the area’s main occupants, this small city—whose center is almost completely surrounded by a meandering curve of the L’Assomption River—is bursting with history and full of heritage buildings.
The most fascinating and essential sites are marked with explanatory signs, providing a quick shot of history to visitors as they pause in their explorations. In July and August, the Centre régional d’archives de Lanaudière also offers guided historical tours for individuals and groups, with guides dressed in historical costumes to explain the fabulous history of L’Assomption.
Arts and culture lovers will especially enjoy the “History, Dinner and Theatre” packages. Head to L’Assomption for a rendezvous with history!
