“St-Jean Port Joli Qc Cdn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2012

We visited that little city what a beautiful place.
to see those nice houses 200 + years old which for us is rare. By the way this place is the capital of sculpture. there is for all tastes and the peoples, so friendly.
we went to see the motorcycle museum it's a must see.
There are lots of bed & breakfast in very old houses. We stayed at the Ermitage the prices are very good to we paid $80.00 for a room for two.
the owner Norman & France will help you for everything. (place to visit, restaurant,)
They have Alpagos, chickens, ducks,
I am glad that I took this trip, it wont be my last.

“I Must See For Woodcarvers!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2011

Eglise de Saint-Jean-Port-Joli can be found in the La Cote-du-Sud portion of the Gaspe Penninsula of Quebec, Canada. The church was built in 1779 and is classified as a National Historic Monument. The inside of the church is a masterpiece of woodcarving. Author Philippe-Aubert de Gaspe was laid to rest under a carved pew near the front of the sanctuary. During the summer months and into early Fall, there is a Creche Exhibit which can be viewed for $4.00.

It's impossible to describe in words the beauty of the woodcarvings in the church, so I'll just attach as many photos as possible. Summer, it would seem, is the best time to visit the Gaspe Penninsula in Quebec. With all the farms, it is apparently a "foodie paradise". We decided to drive the Penninsula in September and found that most things were already closed down, and it was difficult to find a campground that was still open. One of the few things that were still open on the Penninsula were the National Parks. We were anxious to visit the the Parks because they boasted of large herds of moose and caribou. It was a great disappointment to find that dogs are not allowed in Quebec's National Parks. We usually travel with one or both of our little dogs in our motorhome. As we could find nothing really of interest that was still open on the Penninsula, we finally turned south into New Brunswick.

If you do make it up to the Gaspe Penninsula, make a point to visit Eglise de-Saint-Jean-Port-Joli. It's an incredible place to take a break in your travels.
