Culture

History and visual arts: the backbone of our heritage

Portneuf and culture go hand in hand! Here, the natural attractions of the region are in perfect harmony with the remnants of the 17th-century occupation of the territory. Our towns and villages are proud witnesses of Quebec’s history and offer stunning heritage and natural landscapes.

While exploring the region, be sure to meet our local artisans, modern exponents of our culture yet deep-rooted in our heritage. Whether you visit an interpretation centre, a heritage church, an exhibition, or a boutique specializing in arts and crafts or visual arts, our local creators and artists await you! Several festivals and events also honour the cultural life of locals in Portneuf: come and celebrate with us!
