  • Unfortunately, the chapel of Tadoussac was closed for renovations during my visit in early September. Since it was a wonderfully sunny, warm late summer day, I have used the time and am wandered around in Tadoussac. The village is quite small and thrives on the whale tourism. There are many shops, restaurants, hotels and Cafés in the village, and the surrounding scenery is breathtakingly beautiful.

  • The small church was closed due to renovation work. But even from the outside, the churches makes a beautiful impression. Yes the oldest, still well-preserved see them, wooden church of Canada.
