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

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.
