La Martre Lighthouse, La Martre, Quebec

The La Martre Lighthouse is located on a hill in the village of La Martre, Quebec on the shore of the Saint Lawrence River in the Gaspe Region of Quebec. The light, dating to 1906, is active and the site is maintained by the village of La Martre. The light is a 19 metre tall red wooden tower with with a single vertical white stripe on the water side. There is an nearby keeper's house that is now a museum. The tower is open in season for tours, however was closed for the season on the day I was there, but was being used by a wedding party for photographs inside the gallery. Photos taken in September 2017.
