Between city and country
The town of St-Jérôme is located on the north shore of Montreal. It is crossed by Highway 15, which connects it to Montreal and also many ski hills, north of the city. One can also go to Montreal by commuter train, starting from the St-Jérôme Station. For fans of cycling and skiing, the city offers a beautiful linear park, ‘le p’tit train du nord’, a track about 200km long which leads to Mont-Laurier, offering views of picturesque landscapes.
Cultural historical attractions give charm to the city. Among others, there is the Cathedral of St-Jérôme, inaugurated in the year 1900, which is an architectural marvel, including an organ of 3025 pipes. You can also visit the Laurentian Museum of Contemporary Art, which is the largest museum north of Montreal.
In the city center, there is a market close to the Place de la Gare, which is the place of rendezvous for vegetable producers outside the region. Being a very animated and friendly location, consumers can find there, from April to the end of November, fresh fruits and vegetables as well as plants, flowers, herbs, maple products, bread and pastries.
