Cap de la Madeleine Lighthouse, Rivière-la-Madeleine, Quebec

The Cap de la Madeleine Lighthouse is located on a point of land by the Saint Lawrence River near the village of Rivière-la-Madeleine in the Gaspe region of Quebec. The light, dating to 1907, is an 11 metre tall round cast iron tower with gallery. The original keeper's house was replaced by two other houses on the site in 1956. One of the houses is now a restaurant and the second a small museum. When I visited the site in October 2017, the museum was closed for the season and work was being done around the tower. One of the glass panels of the tower was replaced by plywood, but I could not determine how or when the damage had occurred. The site is very picturesque. Photos taken in October 2017.
