This magnificent park, nestled between cliffs, forests and the sea, is at the end of the Gaspé Peninsula.
La Canadienne, police under sail
Before roads and railways linked the different municipalities bordering the River, transport was essentially by ship.
As of the late 18th century, goods and passengers were carried on board small, very agile sailboats called schooners.
Some were used for fishing or for more official missions, like La Canadienne. This armed schooner was responsible for protecting the Gulf of St. Lawrence fisheries.
