Aqueduc et Réservoir de Petite Guinée

This unique historical site was registered as a historical monument in March of 2003 and consists of a network of pipes used to draw water from its source to the neighborhood of St. Francis.


Built in the early part of the 18th century, these water works were built from stone and formed an aqueduct, reservoir, and circular pool. A simple arch and a vaulted tank with a gable roof make up the site which is a nice stop for those interested in architecture.
