Witnessing to two centuries of history relating to that period of time of the Gaspésie fishery, the Site Historique du Banc-de-Pêche-de-Paspébiac is very impressionable with its eleven buildings. The largest being an all wood structure, the largest at that time in North America. With the prevailing atmosphere and the smell of the sea, "the walls tell their own story".
The bilingual guides, in period costume, tell you about the two most important 18th and 19th century Jersey Island fishing companies Robin and Le Boutillier. One may see the contruction of fishing boats, the making of fish nets and the work that was done at the forge and at the cooper's workshop.
Two permanent exhibits, including a brand new one in the carpentry shop, theatre skits, and a video on the history of the site is at your disposition which permit you to know the history of how the fisheries developed in Eastern Canada.
You also find on the site a restaurant whose speciality is seafood, a souvenir boutique and a theatre. Playground for children, camping on the edge of the sea and marina to complement or enhance your visit.
