The Visitor Information Centre in Cap-Pelé opened in 2009, and sits on a historic site, where the first inhabitants of Cap-Pelé settled in 1804.
The building resembles a herring smokehouse, (or “boucanière,” as it is known in our area) and also houses a smokehouse museum, interpreting one of the major industries of this area.
