A boat on the Richelieu A farm
The scene of the Patriotes’ battle, Saint-Charles-sur-Richelieu still preserves vestiges of its past. Along the Richelieu, visitors spot imposing stone houses scattered among the agricultural buildings and more recent constructions. Further from the river, remains of the forest that once covered the region can be seen. Constantly changing, Saint-Charles-sur-Richelieu is defined by the river, its woods, its farmlands, its heritage buildings and its traditions; together, they forge the town’s identity. Located at the frontier between farmland and urban development, the community’s challenge is to work together to preserve and enhance its natural and cultural treasures as well as its quality of life.
