Le Monastère des Augustines : un lieu à découvrir selon le New York Times

36 hours in Quebec City

10. Shouts and murmurs 11 a.m. 

Start the day with a scream while whizzing down the toboggan slide200 feet high and 800 feet longthat runs along Terrasse Dufferin toward the magnificent castlelike Fairmont Le Château Frontenac hotel (3 dollars). Then follow the charming cobblestone lanes of Vieux-Québec to the peaceful Monastère des Augustines, a former monastery dating from the 17th century that served as one of the first hospitals in Canada. Reopened recently as a wellness hotel and spa, the building also has an on-site museum that is a contemplative space arrayed with curious artifacts from the sisters’ healing efforts (10 dollars)."
