St. Pierre, St. Pierre and Miquelon Cruise Port

Saint-Pierre is the capital city of Saint Pierre and Miquelon, a tranquil French territory off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada. These two municipalities are self-governed and are the only remaining trace of the French colonial empire in North America. Because this is the final vestige of a foreign presence that once included over half of Canada and the Louisiana territory, the French culture is really played up for the tourists. Pastries, baguettes, and some of the most genuine French wine can be enjoyed in this petite haven as travelers learn of the region’s rich history and culture. The former colonial rule held strong during various wars, an America revolution, and even profited from the spoils of prohibition. Saint-Pierre was a popular outpost used by Al Capone in his bootlegging operation in which he transported alcohol from Canada to the United States. Today, the quaint town is focused on fishing and making tourists feel as welcome as possible.

 

  • The L’Arche Museum and Archives is gorgeous building that’s home to archives and historic memorabilia of the Territorial Collectivity’s colonial era and beyond.
     
  • After numerous fires claimed a number of the territory’s wooden churches, the Saint-Pierre Cathedral was built in 1907 out of a stone exterior with iron on the inside. The masterful architecture is a stunning sight to behold.
     
  • The Musee Heritage is an intimate museum with a staff knowledgeable of the archipelago’s history and contains artifacts and trinkets, preserved from long ago.
     
  • A ten minute ferry ride will get you to Ile Aux Marins, a small island just off the coast with old buildings and great open spaces to hike around and explore.
