BAIE-SAINT-PAUL

In the beginning of New-France, the territory between CAP TOURMENTE and TADOUSSAC seemed to offer little promise of colonization because of its steep cliffs. One exception, Baie Saint-Paul, was opened to settlers in 1678.

Thus, for a long time the settlements of Charlevoix, except ÎLE-AUX-COUDRES (1728) and LA MALBAIE (1760), were limited to this colony. It was only in 1812, that the isolation of this village ceased when a road was built passing by the "Caps" and joining it to Quebec City. From that time, the population spread along the countryside to set up, little by little, most of the villages we encounter today.

Today, the artist's paradise that is BAIE-SAINT-PAUL, is still known for its panoramic environment as immortalized by Clarence Gagnon, Marc-Aurèle Fortin, Jean-Paul Lemieux and Daniel Brunet.

It is well served with remarkable galleries and art centres.
