Delightful Small Town Churches
It is well worth discovering the Minganie region’s charming small churches, keepers of the faith of the founders and residents of the picturesque towns of Mingan, Magpie and Rivière-au-Tonnerre.
Each church has its own personality. Mingan’s is entirely decorated with Innu art and provides a window into several aspects of Innu culture. The church in Rivière-au-Tonnerre is an impressive century-old wooden church restored in the 1980s. You will be wowed by the craftsmanship of the townspeople, who sculpted the arches, columns and other decorative elements with their pocketknives. As for the church in Magpie, its most delightful attribute is that it is simply charming.
