About Placentia

A storied past meets a bountiful future

Placentia - Who We Are

There are many unique threads that make up the fabric of Placentia.

We are the ancestors of explorers, fishermen and settlers who discovered a place rich in opportunity and ideally situated to make the most of it. We are Basque, we are French, we are English and we are even a little Portuguese. You see their legacy in fortifications like Castle Hill, a National Historic Site. You see their lives in archaeological digs and museums, dotted amongst our quaint streets, our forested hills and our rolling coastal inlets.  Meet their descendants as you stroll down our beautiful Town square and drop into the Placentia Bay Cultural Arts Centre, one of Placentia’s key cultural landmarks. Drop by the old courthouse, one of the oldest operating courtrooms in the country. Taste the local cuisine in one of our many eateries, restaurants and pubs. Enjoy a sunset walk on our famous boardwalk as the bounty of a full day passes with the tide.

Plan your visit to Placentia and discover the wonder for yourself. Our welcome mat is always ready.

Visiting Placentia

How to Get Here

Located along the south west coast of the Avalon Peninsula amongst forcrested hills and rolling coastline, Placentia is approximately 130 km from Newfoundland and Labrador’s capital city, St. John’s (roughly a 90 minute drive). The most direct route from the Trans Canada Highway (TCH). If you are travelling from the ferry terminal at Argentia, Placentia is mere minutes from your demarcation point, along Route 100.

The Town Hall is located at 17 Patterson Drive in the Town Square. (Route from the Lift Bridge - travel Prince William Drive to the Court House , turn left on Jubilee Road and then onto Patterson Drive.)
