Have you ever visited Charlemagne, Quebec? It is Celine's birthplace and each year thousands of tourists from around the world visit this little town with 5799 inhabitants. They visit the home where Celine was born and grew up.

I didn't know that was possible but I really want to go it would be an amazing experience some day I will go and do you know the address to send Celine a letter ? (Celinedion.com)

Your N1 fan ❤ UK, I love you Celine always . Zaynah ❤

Yes, I have, a couple of years ago. The building wasn't being used at the time, but there are plaques out front with the history of when Celine's father purchased the home, etc. It was fun to picture so many people growing up in that small house. I found the people of Charlemagne to be very warm and friendly.....I don't speak French and the people I encountered didn't speak English, but we were able to communicate beautifully as they gave directions to the house and taught me a few new words along the way. The globe had been taken down as they were reconstructing the roads at the time. I have heard that there are tentative plans to restore the house to the condition as it was when Celine was growing up, as the building has been changed when it was remodeled for use as a store/shop.

My mom promised me sometime she would take me to Quebec and visit her home town and walk by her house Smile (I know it was changed to a store at one point)!!! I really can't wait!!! It would be awesome!!!!! Laughing out loud
I love you so much Celine Smile and my prayers are still with you and Rene Smile

Will be there some day <3

I didn't know that it's possible to visit Celine's home where she grew up!
Hope to visit Canada anyway in the future, so thank you for this info.

One day I will visit this place! I saw pictures of the globe they made for her - looks beautiful with the lyrics of some of her songs on it.
Canada must be a beautiful country anyway, and I decided I wanted to go there a long time ago. And of course, Céline's hometown is the most important place for me to see! Smile
