The beautiful Domaine Cataraqui on the heights of Sillery has had many owners over the past 175 years.

Although the Domaine Cataraqui is not a street, it deserves attention because of its ownership in the past by a number of important English-speaking people. Located on Chemin Saint-Louis in Sillery, the property first belonged to James Bell Forsyth, a prosperous lumber merchant, who built his residence there around 1836.
