The Jesuits’ mill in the heart of Charlesbourg is a survivor from another era, 275 years ago. You’ll be charmed by the warm welcome, family-oriented activities, and the beautiful gardens with some 800 grasses. The stone in the old flour mill stopped turning in 1940, but was restored in 1992. The magnificent building still bears the imprint of times past, with its fireplace, stone walls and imposing French-style architecture.
