Our cities and towns all have something unique to offer you. Whether it’s a place, a product, a landscape, an attraction or an event, you’ll always have at least five good reasons for visiting them! Here's Richmond.

Irish, British, French … all three cultures have left their mark on this charming village located halfway between Drummondville and Sherbrooke. Today, as a result of this blended heritage, visitors discover a truly fascinating architecture.
The area’s slate quarries contributed, from the mid 19th century until after the First World War, to harmonize this eclectic built landscape by providing the grey layered stone shingles that still crown buildings and residences here!
Today’s dynamic community, inspired by the town’s olden-day prosperity, truly values their heritage. The 1883 train station has thus been transformed into a family restaurant and one of the town’s stately homes is now known as La Desserte, a fine food grocery store and bistro. When you add the area’s inviting rural setting, you have all the ingredients for a memorable excursion.

Together - For a safe vacation - Let’s be responsible.
