Namur is nature’s showcase in all its glory. At the centre of the village in Le jardin de la relève are displayed cabins created in 2013 by six professional artists under the theme Ma cabane au Canada (My Cabin in Canada). This place suited to personal replenishment allows visitors to pause and breathe in the country air. Nearby, Caracole Park awaits children eager to expend their energy.
Namur is home to 571 citizens. Even though it was officially established in 1964, it was founded around 1870 by a group of settlers from the town of Namur in Belgium. The Canadian town maintains close ties with its sister city in Belgium. The Fêtes Namuroises (Namurian Festival) take place every three years on Québec soil in order to bring together both cultures along with cousins from Namur, Wisconsin in the U.S.
Saint Paul’s church is closely tied to the history of the village. The municipality’s restaurants provide hearty fare for the visitors.
