Ville de Joliette
A city of nature, work and culture, Joliette’s origins date back to 1823 when Barthélemy Joliette, upon discovering the hydraulic power of the L’Assomption River, founded the village he called Industrie. It wasn’t until its incorporation in 1864 that it became the city of Joliette.
You are invited to discover the city’s cathedral that houses a permanent exhibit of works by Ozias Leduc. Go for a stroll in Des Dalles or Louis-Querbes parks. In summer, you can explore 40 km of bike trails or enjoy a canoe ride on the L’Assomption River. In winter, go skating on this same river, the longest groomed skate way in all of Quebec. To top it all off, treat yourself to a show at the Centre Culturel de Joliette, after enjoying a delicious meal.
