Saint-Benoît-du-Lac Abbey

Saint-Benoît-du-Lac ( Cantons-de-l'Est )

In 1912, Benedictine monks from France founded a monastery overlooking Lake Memphremagog. The modern Saint-Benoît-du-Lac Abbey, designed by Dom Bellot, pays tribute to the harmony of natural geometric forms and makes splendid use of multicoloured bricks. Many of the monk’s prayer meetings are sung in Gregorian and Latin chant. Shop featuring maple products, cider and cheese.
