Three Crosses of Mattawa

The Three Crosses were erected on this site in 1686. A group of Explorers and missionary priests during their trip up the Ottawa River stopped at Explorer’s Point to repair their canoes. In commemoration and by order of Sieur de Troyes, they decided to mark the place where the two rivers meet and erected the three crosses.

The Three Crosses are standing on the crest of the Laurentian Mountains across from the Town of Mattawa on the Québec side.
