Saint-Benoit-du-Lac Travel Guide



Saint-Benoît-du-Lac is a francophone community in the Eastern Township region of Quebec settled originally by Loyalists fleeing the United States after the American declaration of independence. Their legacy remain evident in the largely Loyalist architecture in small but charming villages such as Compton and Cowansville.[1]

The highlight of Saint-Benoît-du-Lac is the unmistakable steeple of Saint-Benoît-du-Lac, hidden among the trees, where monks of the Benedictine sect produce apple cider and cheese, welcoming visitors to church services featuring Gregorian chants.[2]
