The tapestry was beautiful and the history about Conche was very interesting. Worth the visit! Newfoundland itself was an amazing province to visit!

The tapestry in Conche is a hidden gem. The history of the area is depicted in needlework that echoes the stitching and style of the famous Bayeux tapestry. We spent a couple of hours looking at this incredible piece of craftsmanship. We'll worth the trip!
