Visit St. Matthew’s Cemetery, which has recently been restored by the City of Quebec in accordance with the spirit of this hallowed place.
Listen to well-known historian David Mendel recount the sometimes tragic end of the 6,000 to 10,000 men, women and children who were buried there between 1772 and 1860.
This 12-station guided tour of the 314 gravestones, complete with quality sound effects and photographs, is about 40-minutes long.
Located at 775 Saint-Jean Street, St. Matthew’s Cemetery is a classified cultural property. A peaceful haven in the heart of the St. Jean-Baptiste quarter, the Anglican cemetery still conveys a feeling of being a corner of England.
Quebec History lives on beyond the grave
The previous reviewer obviously has no appreciation for history or for the culture of Québec. Perhaps the poor chap thought this app was a game, and came away disappointed when he realized he would have to pay attention to someone else for more than five minutes.
This app gives a great audiovisual tour of an important historical and cultural site in the Québec City region. It's a wonderful companion if you happen to make a visit of St. Matthew's Cemetery. Even if you aren't able to, it will give you great insight into a seminal period in the history of the province.
