The Site Historique National Paspébiac is a heritage site that on a free or guided tour you can discover the history of cod fishing by visiting the eleven historic buildings on site. It is also an opportunity to meet authentic Paspéyas, and taste traditional dishes while enjoying the sun and salty air.
The LeBoutillier warehouse is sure to impress. Made of wood, it is one of the largest fishing vessels ever built in America. With its five floors, it stands out within a unique heritage complex classified by the governments of both Canada and Québec.
