Église Saint-Eustache

Located only 45 minutes from Saint-Hippolyte, the Église Saint-Eustache is an integral piece of Québec history. During the Battle of Saint Eustache, a deciding battle in what is commonly known as the "Patriots' War", the church was a refuge for the beleaguered Patriotes. It was partially destroyed by the British during the 1837 battle but was rebuilt in the following decade.
