Quebéc (stad) bezienswaardigheden Alles weergeven 


In Quebec’s Charlevoix region, for centuries the well-heeled town of Baie-Saint-Paul has been inspiring artists ranging from the traditional, including the Group of Seven who painted here in the ‘20s, to the avant garde, like the Cirque du Soleil performance troupe that hosted its first ever show, right here in Baie-Saint-Paul, in 1984.

Founded over 350 years ago on the northern shore of the St Lawrence River, Baie-Saint-Paul is one of Quebec’s oldest towns. Surrounded by mountains and woodland, take a wander past the centuries-old houses, dozens of which have been turned into galleries and museums highlighting the work of local artists. Given the local scenery, it’s perhaps no surprise that most of the art you’ll see focuses on the peaceful surrounding landscape.
