Culture and Heritage

Visit various tourist attractions and learn about the milestones in the history that has shaped today’s Québec maritime, from the Aboriginal peoples to the French regime, the British conquest and World War II.

Nature’s influence on artistic and cultural life in Québec maritime is also undeniable. Attracted by our natural resources and the promise of a better life, the settlers who came here to build a new life brought their traditions from various distant shores; they have left us a maritime heritage that is rich in history and fascinating stories.

The unique scenery in Québec maritime has also inspired many artists and artisans from here and elsewhere. As you travel throughout our regions, you will find many talented artists. Visit them in their studios, browse boutiques filled with handmade treasures, or treat yourself to an authentic and unforgettable experience at a local show.

To uncover our communities’ best kept secrets, visit our museums, art galleries, interpretation sites, gardens, historic sites and economuseums. And don’t miss this opportunity to sample our regional cuisine. Feast your eyes... and your taste buds in Québec maritime!
