This old British fort is located on Île aux Noix, in the middle of the Richelieu River. Located a few kilometres from the Canada-U.S. border. The fort was built from 1819 to 1829 and features restored defense works and stonework buildings, and is surrounded by a star-shaped moat.

 

 The site as a whole had the aim of protecting the colony from an eventual American invasion along the Richelieu River.
