Val-d'Or The Essential
Interesting
Situated in the heart of the Abitibi region, Val d'Or was created in 1922 during the gold rush that followed the discovery of major mineral deposits in Rouyn-Noranda, and became an important producer of gold. Today it is one of the only active mining towns in the Abitibi Region, and boasts several cultural, industrial and adventure tourism attractions. In summer, the many saloons, bars and restaurants light up the Rue Principale with their colorful neon signs.
