555, Rue Notre-Dame Est, Trois-Rivières

Located a few steps away from Our Lady of the Cape Shrine, the Maison Rocheleau, also known as “Manoir des Jésuites”, is one of Trois-Rivières’ oldest buildings.

Dating from 1742, it is one of the rare testaments to New France in the Cap-de-la-Madeleine sector. Originally built by François Rocheleau on the Jesuits’ request, the house was the core of the seigneury during the New France era and was eventually converted during the 19th century into a sumptuous hotel for the Shrine’s visitors.
