Ship tourism is a major source of revenue for this small locale. If you're in the area it is a pleasant stop. The cathedral is unique as it is all made of wood. Some other old houses remain from mid-1800's. Enjoy.

With the golds, oranges and occasional reds, the farms, the immaculate roadside homes and yards and of course, Perce, 3 days or more driving around the peninsula are so very worthwhile.
