Artists are particularly attracted to the town of Perce for its 438 metre monolith rock - a landmark for the area which sits just off shore from the small town. Perce Rock provides a stunning subject for the canvas especially at sunrise or at sunset.

Perce Rock can be reached by foot at low tide. Caution should be exercised when exploring the rock, since it looses in excess of 300 tonnes of rock each year due to the wave and wind action of the Gulf of St Lawrence - the world's largest estuary.

The combination of Perce Rock and Bonaventure Island form the Parc national de I'lle Bonaventure et du Rocher Perce, a provincial Park of Quebec.
