Manoir Papineau National Historic Site

Manoir Papineau National Historic Site

Set in Montebello, halfway between Gatineau and Montréal, Manoir Papineau is a page straight out of 19th century history that opens right before your eyes, the grand estate of Louis-Joseph Papineau, the man who was to become a leading figure in Canadian politics.

Flanked by four towers, the manor house rules over its surrounding landscape with its landscaped garden, spacious lawns, wooded areas and a stream.

Take an excursion into the life of the head of Francophone patriots. On the menu: a 45-minute guided tour of the manor and its outbuildings. Nostalgia is guaranteed.
