The scenic drive to this Benedictine monastery offers lovely glimpses of the sparkling waters of Lake Memphrémagog, dominated by the Appalachian Mountains. Distinguishable by its impressive steeple, the complex was designed by Dom Paul Bellot (1876-1944). The monks are famous for their Gregorian chants and the cheese produced and sold on the premises.
