The nave of this beautiful church.
The centrepiece of the town is the Sainte-Anne-de-la-Pérade Church, a Catholic church (dedicated to Saint Anne) near the banks of the Sainte-Anne River.

In December 1852, when Louis-Adolphe Dupuis was serving as parish priest, it was decided, at a meeting of La Fabrique, to dedicate all the money from the coffers to the construction of a new church. The contract was not officially signed until May 31, 1855. The plans for this new church were inspired by the Notre-Dame de Montréal church. It was built on land that had been donated by citizens. The construction work took place over 14 years, during which time the stones from Deschambault were transported to Sainte-Anne. On July 29, 1856, Bishop Cooke laid the foundation stone. Finally, the church was opened on August 26, 1869.

As soon as we arrive in front of the church, we see above the large portico a statue of Saint Anne standing 30.25 meters (96ft) above the ground. It was carved by an Italian, J. B. Salla, in a granite block from a St. Mark quarry.
