Saint Pierre and Miquelon Things to Do

  • Memorials

    Up the hill toward the church, there is a row of white crosses. Each one had a decorative metal plaque at the bottom and a smaller plate at the top, bearing a name and “He Died for France.” These were men who traveled overseas to enlist in the French military during World War I or World War II, and didn’t return.

    The big 3-story Jezequel house was a prefab—it came on a schooner from France in 1850. The first floor was a work room—that’s where he cleaned the fish, repaired his nets, etc. The family mainly lived on the second floor. The third floor was an attic. The first floor has a display of fishing equipment, including a dorry boat. The 2nd floor has a...

  • City-Island Bus Tour including Unusual...

    If you're on the island for the day or a single overnight, the best way to get an overview of St. Pierre is to take one of the bus tours that leave the bus stop near the ferry terminal about once an hour. It takes you through the small downtown area, on up to one of the highest points on the island for a quite dramatic view of the area, and back...

  • Parish church and Sailor Memorial

    A two minute walk from the ferry port is a rather charming, if modest, monument to the French sailors and fishermen who have died in the cold North Atlantic waters offshore. This ain't the Arch de Triomphe, but it's moving in its way.
