Rich in history, Placentia was the natural choice for early fishing settlements due to it’s well-sheltered port and stone-covered beaches apt for drying fish.

Stretched across a forested coastal area on the Avalon Peninsula and approximately 100 km southwest of St. John's, Placentia continues to thrive today. Maintaining the area’s allure as a strategic location for business while remaining one of the most picturesque communities in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, Placentia will always be known as “The pleasant place.”
