Built to keep out the Brits!

The tower is just part of the old port- a lovely place to spend a few days.

Did not dislike a thing! Great to have a physical connection between the people who left France from this port (and others) to settle La Nouvelle France, IN what is now Quebec and parts of the Maritime Provinces of Canada.
