Baie-Saint-Paul

The birthplace of internationally renowned Cirque du Soleil and a favorite of Canada’s Group of Seven painters, Baie Saint-Paul with its more than 85 century-old homes sits in a lovely valley and still attracts artists today.

Strolling along its narrow streets lined with quaint boutiques and art galleries is a great way to discover and fully enjoy one of Québec’s oldest towns. The nearby Petite-Rivière-Saint-François, a scenic six-kilometre drive down the mountain to the St. Lawrence River is another favorite of visitors.

Baie-Saint-Paul’s major attractions are the Carrefour culturel Paul-Médéric (Paul-Médéric’s art centre”), Maison René-Richard (René-Richard’s Home) and Musée d’art contemporain de Baie-Saint-Paul (“Baie-Saint-Paul’s museum of contemporary arts”) host of the International Symposium of New Painting in Canada every August.
