Levis Travel Guide

Agritourism, heritage, art galleries, or picturesque scenery - Lévis has a lot to offer tourists. Owing to the three major rivers Saint Lawrence River, the Etchemin and Chaudière Rivers winding through it, the Canadian town of Lévis offers wonderful scenic views from lookout points along hiking trails and bike paths. Art centres featuring various exhibits for the summer, performing arts facilities, historical sites and heritage buildings - they are all a true testament to Lévis's rich cultural resources.

From the heights of the cliff-top terrace to the Parcours des Anses hugging the waterfront, visitors will enjoy a breathtaking panorama framed by the Quebec bridges and Île d’Orléans. As a backdrop stand Place Royale and the fortifications of the Old Capital.

Observe the ever present maritime traffic, the to-and-fro of the ferry boats and the elegance of the docked cruise ships fascinate. Visit the A.C. Davie, a national historic site established in 1829, the only shipyard in North America to have maintained its 19th century vestiges. Don't miss out on the stable building and exhibit.

Other local attractions include the square of Notre-Dame de Lévis Church, a historic monument built in 1850, Anglican and Presbyterian spires and one of the Lévis' builders, Joseph-David Déziel, historic monument (1806-1882) or visit the home of Alphonse Desjardins (recognized as Museum Institution and classified historic monument) and learn about the story of the Mouvement Desjardins and the father of the cooperative movement.
