Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu

Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu is in Quebec, Canada.

Understand

Located 50 km (31 mi) southeast of Montreal on the shores of the Richelieu River, the current incarnation of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu was created in 2001 when the neighbouring municipalities of Saint-Luc, Iberville, Saint-Athanase, L'Acadie and Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu were amalgamated into one city. Situated in an area rich with fertile soil, agrotourism is one of the region's biggest draws, boasting orchards and cider-houses, vineyards and wineries, maple sugar shacks and more.
