Couvent Jésus-Marie is believed to be the largest and most architecturally ambitious convent school erected in the Franco-Catholic colonies; few of these schools in Western Canada, if any, approach its scale and character. Excerpt taken from: Ecclesiastical Buildings in Gravelbourg, Saskatchewan
The most renowned area of the former convent is the library. It is like taking a step back in time when you walk through this opulent space. The detailed architecture and the paintings are truly spectacular to behold.
