Saint-Jean-Port-Joli and Le Pilier-de-Pierre

SAINT-JEAN-PORT-JOLI
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 banks of the St. Lawrence and near the marina, our village can be explored leisurely as you visit our studios, museums and parks, which all demonstrate the importance we place on sculpture and craftsmanship. Visitors can discover the village’s little (and not so little!) treasures, like the church built in 1779.
Lodging and fine dining are plentiful here. You’ll have no trouble finding enjoyable restaurants, B&Bs and inns!
