In a few words
A must-see touristic village, Saint-Jean-Port-Joli holds a special place in Québec's cultural landscape. A true Mecca of sculpture, our picturesque village was put on Québec's tourist map by the work of three pioneers in the 1930s: Médard Bourgault (sculpture), Émilie Chamard (weaving) and Eugène Leclerc (model boats). Located on the St. Lawrence River's banks, near the marina, we recommend discovering this quaint, artistic village through its many workshops, galleries, museums, and parks, all testifying to the history behind a community mainly driven by sculpture and fine arts. . You'll have no trouble finding enjoyable restaurants, B&Bs and inns!
