San Bernardo Byway

Overview

St. Bernard Parish reflects a French and Spanish past, but also strong in this region are influences of the Isleños people from the Spanish Canary Islands. Natives of those islands, which lie off the coast of Africa, were drawn here more than two centuries ago by the fertile soil and plentiful trapping and fishing; their descendants populate the area today. Their influences are present along Highway 46, in addition to sights of a historic battlefield, plantation homes and evidence of a vigorous fishing industry.
