Take your pick: adrenaline packed or slow and contemplative?
Set on the Townships Trail, Richmond, had a very prosperous past, notably because of the railways. The old English neighbourhood offers a tour taking visitors to more than 36 heritage buildings; among them the old train station, which is now a restaurant, the old Mont Saint-Patrice convent which houses the Centre d’art de Richmond and the nearby Sainte-Bibiane Roman Catholic church.
On the other side of the Saint-François river, by taking the old iron bridge, visitors will discover the Saint-Paul French Presbyterian church where they can visit the Centre-d’interpretation de l’ardoise, slate interpretation centre. Besides the nautical park which offers boat rentals on the river, the Route verte and the Sentiers de l’Estrie also run through the area! Enough to please all outdoor activity enthusiasts.
