The Site de la Nouvelle France takes you back in time to experience daily life in 17th-century New France. On your own or with a guide, meet colourful characters from this period. In the majestic setting of the Saguenay Ford, tour animated reconstructions of Québec City in the 17th century and watch archaeologists at work. You’ll see French colonial society and Amerindian culture in a whole new light.
