The majestic rivière Duparquet, with its picturesque landscapes on either side, adds ineffable charm to this village, which was named after its founder, local businessman François Gallichan.

The old presbytery, repurposed today as Café des Rumeurs, is one building that harks back to the 18th century when the town was a fur-trading post.

Gallichon’s location near large, signposted water bodies makes it a popular destination for hunting, fishing and water sports. The nearby lakes also contribute to a microclimate beneficial to horticulture and market gardening.

In short, Gallichan is a village offering a pleasing mix of vacation atmosphere, water, forests and fertile farmland.
