Feel like an authentic, one-of-a-kind experience at the heart of Old Québec? The Monastère des Augustines (Augustines Monastery) offers visitors a unique concept that combines culture, heritage and overall health. Rooted in the past and in the memory of the Augustinian Sisters, the Monastery proffers a soothing invitation to care for the wellness of body and mind of its guests in an inspiring, historical setting.

A beneficial return to basics

Focussed on the individual and on hospitality, the Monastery welcomes you to a haven of relaxation marked by comfort and simplicity. During your stay, choose either a contemporary room or an authentic monastic cell formerly used by a nun. This 400-year-old monastery also owns close to 45,000 artifacts – 1,000 of which are displayed at the museum – from the Augustinian Sisters’ daily lives, their work and their order.
