The artistic fountains result from a reflection conducted by seventeen municipalities on the place that water occupies in their respective cultural identity. Made by local artists and artisans, each fountain symbolizes a characteristic feature of its home municipality. This project is the first of its kind in Quebec.
In daytime, visitors discover beautiful landscapes and attractions, and in the evening, the lights integrated into the fountains glow in perfect harmony with the stars and, with a bit of luck, the northern lights.
The fountain tour is a very pleasant way to discover sixteen communities: Amos, Barraute, Berry, La Corne, La Morandière, La Motte, Landrienne, Launay, Pikogan, Preissac, Rochebaucourt, St-Mathieu-d’Harricana, St-Marc-de Figuery, St-Maurice-de-Dalquier, Ste-Gertrude-Manneville and Trécesson. Enjoy the ride!
