Today is another step of our trip to Canada! On the way to Québec, we had stopped in Baie-Saint-Paul as it had been recommended to us and I must say it is worth it 🙂 As its name is suggesting, it situated on the sea side but its main characteristic is that has been welcoming artists since the beginning of the 20th century. The area of Charlevoix as a whole has actually inspired many Canadian artists and Baie-Saint-Paul is even the birthplace of the Cirque du Soleil. We started by a quick walk on the sea front and then wandered around the streets with their cute houses. There are also lots of nice art galleries in the city centre! It is quite impressive! I especially liked the artists exhibited in Beauchamp art gallery such as Martin Beaupré, Pierre Edouard Boucher, Gabrielle Dumont or Annie Labbé etc. We then did a break in a really nice little coffee called Café Charlevoix which are roasting their own coffee. It is really cosy in there and the coffees are delicious 🙂 When leaving it, I spotted across the street Le Mouton Noir, a restaurant that looked interesting! However, as we had to be in Québec before the evening, we didn’t get the chance to try it. Another time maybe 🙂 I hope you enjoyed this stopover!
