Galets Fishing Camp

Les galets

Known as the “Magasins du Galet,” this strip of a dozen small buildings mysteriously yet bravely huddled together on a peninsula, greets you on the outskirts of town.

Over time, this place commonly referred to as the “Galets” became the town’s symbol, and was recently declared a historical site by the government of Québec.

Their granite foundations since polished by the tide, these former fishing warehouses have weathered time, winds and sea mist. Once owned by the fishermen of Natashquan and used to store tackle, salt and dry cod, and stow seal oil, they now belong to small independent local fisheries.
