A quiet country town, Saint-Télesphore has a long and proud cultural tradition. Over the years, this village has produced and inspired several artists over the years, including Joe Laflamme and Bernar Clavelle; its picturesque village center also features in the film Secret d’hiver. To this day, the town encourages cultural expression with its annual singing competition for local talent. First as a potash producer and later as a farming community, Saint-Télesphore has a strong agricultural tradition started by settlers from Scotland, Ireland, and England. The architecture and churches are fine examples of the town’s beginnings, and well worth a drive up from Highway 20.
