Lieu historique national du Phare-de-Pointe-au-Père

Municipality:
From atop Pointe-au-Père lighthouse, the St. Lawrence appears even more magnificent than at ground level. On the shore of what is considered one of the most difficult waterways to navigate, the Pointe-au-Père navigational aid station has provided the best pilots to take charge of ships sailing between North America and Europe, making it a vital site. As well, it was also off Pointe-au-Père that the grand cruise ship, the Empress of Ireland, tragically sank in 1914.
