St. Pacome

In the Kamouraska county, lies the town of St. Pacome, a charming community on the banks of a winding river Ouelle. The town is flanked by a marine terrace formed about ten thousand years ago by the glacier melting. Guests can watch salmon swimming all the way up the river to the village.

Offering visitors a view on impressive landscapes, the riverbanks provide paths ideal for bike rides.   The magnificent King family estate stretches up to the Ouelle River.

The estate of the family, which contributed in large part to the economic development of the town, boasts a magnificent garden.

The road of Cote-Norbert leads to the Cote-des-Chats hilltop with a belvedere Observatoire offering an exceptional panoramic view of the St. Lawrence plains, the village, and the meandering river. You’ll be able to see the island of Ile-aux-Coudres and even the town of Saint-Paul Bay on the north bank of the St. Lawrence. Newcomers may be interested in visiting a raspberry farm field Domain du Pacomois at the end of the Domain Street.
