After a hike or a museum visit, take some time to relax at the foot of this impressive Christ on the cross sculpture, made of hand-sculpted wood. This will give you an opportunity to observe the city of Saint-Pierre and its port.

Fort Lorraine

For a panoramic view of the city on a historical site, head to Fort Lorraine. This observation post was built after the liberation of the archipelago by the Free French forces and Free French Naval Forces in 1941.

La Saline (salt works)

Come discover the methods used by early cod fishermen. On site you’ll see a traditional dory and all the equipment needed to cut and store fish. Experience this authentic fishing scene!

Le Square Joffre

You can’t miss the sculpture of a sailor that overlooks this peaceful park. This statue, erected in 1964, was sculpted out of a block of granite and is dedicated to the many sailors who lost their lives at sea. During the Sailors’ Festival, the procession stops there to lay flowers at its base: a lovely, touching moment to share with the locals.

Les Salines (salt works)

Formerly used to store salt, salted fish and fishing gear, these colorful little cabins located on the coast are now used to protect artisanal fishers’ equipment. You’ll be wanting to repaint your house when you get back home!

L’île aux marins

Located opposite Saint-Pierre, this little island, which seems a bit modest, is a testament to the archipelago’s past, in particular the era of the great cod fishery. Since the 1960s, the island is inhabited only in summer, but heritage associations are working to revitalize it, for the great pleasure of visitors.

Place du Général De Gaulle

Located opposite the Saint-Pierre Post Office, you surely saw this place where locals gather, both for everyday meet-ups and for holiday festivities. The fountain, which dates back to 1866, was used to supply fishing boats with drinking water.

Place Richard Briand: the Zazpiak-Bat Fronton

Zazpiak-Bat means “7 in 1” and refers to the seven provinces of the Basque Country. This stunning colored wall was built in 1898 and is evidence of the sport played by the Basques, the first fishermen to settle on the island. Every year, it is host to the Basque Festival, an event that all visitors should attend. It is noteworthy that this fronton, the oldest in North America, is still standing after all these years.

Pointe aux canons and the Lighthouse

For a long time, the archipelago was the scene of battles with the English and these cannons were the first weapons of choice to protect the islands against invasions. Not far away is the red and white lighthouse that can be seen at the end of the jetty, offering an amazing view. You can reach the lighthouse on foot: well worth the walk!

The Acadian Memorial Stone

This commemorative monument is a reminder of the odyssey of the Acadian people from 1755 to the beginning of the 19th century.

The Cap Blanc Lighthouse

Cap Blanc is one of the last lighthouses built overseas. Its light was first turned on in 1883. Take note, photographers: a splendid view awaits you here!

The Cathedral

After fires destroyed many of the archipelago’s wooden churches, a cathedral was built of cement and was opened in 1907. Observe the interior architectural style, featuring upper galleries and railings made of wrought iron, true evidence of Basque influences.

The Cemetery

After being moved several times since the 17th century, the cemetery found a permanent location in 1872 in the western part of the city. Take a stroll down the lanes of this graveyard and see the thousands of headstones and monuments which evoke our history.

The Lebailly Foundry

A former maritime foundry built in 1878, this building was constructed using a French method that dates back to the Middle Ages. Proof once again of the influence of the French!

The Notre Dame des Ardilliers Church

This wooden church was given the name Notre Dame des Ardilliers in 1865 in honor of Father Ardilliers, the priest who made it possible to build the first place of worship on the island of Miquelon-Langlade by advancing funds.

The Panoramic View from the Cape of Miquelon

Learn how to use your camera’s “panorama” function, because the one you discover here is breathtaking. In good weather, it’s even possible to see the coast of Newfoundland.

The Sisters of St Joseph de Cluny Congregation

Following the request of the Ministry of Colonies, the nuns of this religious congregation worked as nurses and elementary school teachers until 1998. The building was demolished in 2001 and a new modern house was inaugurated in 2004.

The War Memorial

This memorial was built in honor of residents of Saint-Pierre who gave their lives for France during the two World Wars.
