Saint-Hyacinthe The Essential
The grainstore of Quebec, the Saint-Hyacinthe region is renowned for its rich fertile soil and abundant harvests. The town grew up in the late 18C around the watermills along the banks of the River Yamaska. It is the site of some lovely Victorian houses and some outstanding public edifices such as the cathedral and Marché-Centre, the oldest public market of Quebec.
