Oh Look Another Church!
We recently came across this church in Sainte-Sophie in the Lanaudière region northeast of Montréal.
We’ve been exploring this region a lot lately because it’s close to home and has lots of charming little towns and old churches to discover.
This one looked bigger than most of the small-town churches we’d seen in the region, which I thought was interesting so we doubled back to have a closer look.
I wasn’t able to find out much about the place online other than the fact the the parish was established in 1851, and that this version was built between 1865 and 1867.
I did my usual walkabout, admiring the craftsmanship that went into these lovely stone walls.
and of course checking out the requisite adjoining cemetery.

The rural Québec landscape is dotted with small towns and villages and each town built its own church that often became its architectural highlight.
