Description

In a few words

As starting point of numerous gold seekers in the 19th century, Notre-Dame-des-Pins is extremely proud of its covered bridge. Built in 1929, it is the longest of its kind in Québec and the second in Canada, with a total span of 154.5 metres. Walk across it to marvel at its structure - a testament to construction methods of bygone days. You can cross on foot in the fall, spring and summer, and by snowmobile in the winter. An information booth is open in the summer with a guide to answer your questions. Interpretation panels depicting the history of the Perrault bridge from the time it was built. Come broaden your knowledge, you'll find out why bridges were covered back in the good old days.

(*) At the time of writing, the Perrault Covered Bridge is currently closed to traffic for an indefinite period.
