St-Laurent de l'Île d'Orleans

Founded in 1679, St-Laurent is one of the island's maritime villages. Until as late as 1935, residents used boats as their main means of transportation. St-Laurent has a rich history in farming and fishing. Work is underway to help bring back to the island some of the species of fish that were once abundant here.
