Travel back to 1927 with the help of colourful characters who will reveal the secrets of this authentic company village with its forty original buildings. Celebrating its 100th birthday this year, the Saint-Georges de Val-Jalbert convent-school has resisted the hazards of time, and remains one of the best preserved buildings in the village.
You'll be amazed by the Ouiatchouan Falls, which are higher than Niagara. Ride the cable car to the summit of the mountain and discover the breathtaking panorama. Live the magic of the immersive multimedia show with its illumination of the artefacts in the mill -- and the life of the workers!
110 Years later and Val-Jalbert is now home to a mini hydroelectric power plant, a plant that is to helping to insure the sustainability of the tourist experience. The discovery of this jewel of architectural integration takes place over the course of a walk featuring a series of interpretive devices. Lookouts and perches provide spectacular views of the Ouiatchouan Falls and the river. This walk offers visitors a historical, industrial, technical, socio-economic, environmental and even an artistic perspective -- in short, a global view of the project.
