  Lighthouse of La Martre
by sim1

You can find this beautiful red lighthouse between Matane and Gaspé in a little town called Riviere la Martre. It is on the right side of the road when you drive to Gaspé and it is located on a hill, high above the road.
It was so beautiful to see this lighthouse, with its spectacular red color against the clear blue sky. And the light was just beautiful, so late in the late afternoon.

Riviere de la Martre is a tiny little village, with only a few houses and a church. It was really funny though, how this lighthouse stood in the middle of the village, with across the street a white wooden church. There was nothing to see and do in the village when we were there. But you can visit the lighthouse when you get here earlier in the day.
It is open daily 9AM-5PM, mid-June through Labour Day and the admission is $3.
