Phare de La Martre
The lighthouse at La Martre, jewel of the Gaspé coast, stands proudly on its natural promontory near the church, its unusual octagonal wooden frame exposed to the soft caress of the sun and the harsh lash of the wind. See the rotating light system that is still operated by the original clockwork system installed in 1906.
