Photographer's Note

Saint-Hilarion, Charlevoix County

Founded: 1860
Population: 1345

Anybody who will tour the province will be surprised by the size of the churches. Smallest villages have amazingly big churches.

A fine example is shown here.

If the buildings are impressive, they were indeed costing a fortune to build to the small communities earlier in the past century when people had big families and had to survive with hard work, and difficult living conditions.

The biggest house of the village was also most of the time the home of the priest built next to the church.

I choose this Title police to go along with the image.

Hope you will like it !
