Little Caillou, Terrebonne, Boudreaux Canal … these are some of the charming Cajun-French names you’ll see when driving to the small town of Chauvin.

Saltwater fishing outfitters in Chauvin and neighboring Cocodrie will take you out for a day of unforgettable casting — and almost assuredly, catching — in the abundant waters that surround the town. A decidedly different cultural attraction also awaits visitor to the fishing village. Named simply the Chauvin Sculpture Garden, this assemblage of religious art, crafted in concrete, is a monumental folk art masterpiece that has been attracting visitors for decades.
