Circuit patrimonial de Saint-Esprit
We invite you to discover the heritage circuit of Saint-Esprit.
The first settlers arrived around 1784 on the lands of the seigneury of L'Assomption. It was not until 1838 that the name Saint-Esprit parish was made official by the Bishop of Montreal. Contrary to the villages of the region, which were mainly organized in a rectilinear fashion, the village core was consolidated in the form of a small French-inspired town. Thus, Saint-Esprit possesses several valuable heritage buildings and this spatial organization in the form of a village gives it a unique appeal in the region. This wealth of the period explains the large presence of wealthy houses.
