Established in 1679, this town is set on a plateau that has the island's most fertile land and has long been the center of traditional farming industries. The best products grown here are potatoes, asparagus, and corn. The Espace Félix-Leclerc—an exhibit by day and a boîte à chansons (combination coffeehouse and bar with live performances) by night—works to honor the late singer and songwriter, who made St-Pierre
his home. If you continue west on chemin Royal, just ahead is the bridge to the mainland and Route 440.
