  • Very nice historical residence. It just wasn't clear that tours are only given at specific times each day. It was also conducted in French..they did give us an English written document to try and follow along with the tour group.
  • Small museum in the family Manor of the Explorer malouin who ' discovered ' Atlantic Canada for Europe. Good reminder of his travels and the conditions of navigation and life of the time. Guided tour of a few pieces of the Manor, and two films on the voyages of Cartier and other French explorers of America.
