La Piazzetta St-Joseph sits in the middle of the new district of St-Roch, one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Québec City, which is booming once again. The symbol of its rebirth is the St-Roch garden, an oasis of greenery in the centre of the neighbourhood.
Not far from the River St-Charles and Parc Victoria, near La Piazzetta, you will also find the Théâtre La Bordée, the Impérial theatre, the D’Auteuil theatre, the Méduse art and culture centre and, of course, the Gabrielle Roy library.
For several years now, this neighbourhood has been home to many new technology companies, such as Ubisoft and Beenox. The young professionals who work there have attracted bars, restaurants, cafés, bakeries and more.
The Université Laval visual arts school also set up shop nearby, along with Téluq, Québec’s distance education university, the head office of the Université du Québec and Québec City’s centre for economic and urban development.
This dynamic part of the capital has become a new tourism destination to complement Old Québec. The cultural, commercial and artistic offering promises an original experience that has become a powerful force of attraction for this area, with unique and original activities all year long, such as North America’s biggest Christmas tree in winter.
Visiting La Piazzetta St-Joseph lets you experience the fabulous rebirth of a neighbourhood where the architecture attests to both its ancient pedigree and its enthusiasm for modern times.View menu
