Have you ever been to one of our cemeteries?

 

You should take advantage of the summer vacations to go for a walk in one of our cemeteries. Especially with the beautiful season coming up, the plants and flowers are blooming day by day. Our cemeteries are well laid out and you might make some discoveries like the Calvary of Notre-Dame Cemetery on Fournier Boulevard. Sometimes people leave small mementos or offerings. There are also some cemeteries that house historical figures from the region.
