Witness to more than two centuries of great saga of the Gaspesian fishery, the eleven buildings of the Banc-de-Pêche-de-Paspébiac National Historic Site present a majestic presence.
Permeated with ocean air, “the walls tell you their stories”. The voices and traditional skills of the animation team allow you to re-live the great adventures of the two major Jersey companies of the 18th and 19th centuries – that of the Robin’s and that of the LeBoutillier’s.
Experience the daily work of ship-building, the repair of fish-nets, the forging of metal and the making of barrels. Exhibitions, theatrical animation and video presentations are only a part of the experience that will allow you to discover how the fisheries developed in eastern Canada.
On site, you will also find the restaurant L'Ancre, specializing in fish and seafood, a souvenir boutique as well as a theatre. A children’s playground, a campground on the shore and a marina are close by – to complete the pleasure of your visit.
