Home for the retired seaman, Jacques Cartier who journeyed (and overwintered) into the Saint Lawrence River - an incredible feat for the time. A short drive/bus ride from the walled city, the grounds are restored and there is an hour long tour and short movie...More

This is a historic house where the founder of French Canada lived after his voyages. We enjoyed an excellent guided tour covering Cartier's voyages, daily life in the 16th century, and the techniques of navigation in Cartier's time.

Jacques Cartier ? just to show my ignorance... he was an explorer who discovered Canada. Nice morning visit, interesting house, amusing English speaking guide. Cant help thinking they are missing a trick because there is nowhere to get a drink or snack.
