Considered to have among the best farmlands in the Abitibi region, Palmarolle owes its existence to the fertility of the soil – a major draw for settlers at the onset of the last century.

Geographical location, green spaces and water features spurred the development of this village, which boasts all the advantages of a small city while enjoying the tranquility of its rural setting.

There is much to commend this charming town: the landscapes, abundant nature, variety of outdoor recreation options, municipal beach, sports arena, skatepark, and numerous trails for summer and winter activities.
