  • Visit Limoëlou manor, former residence of the famous explorer Jacques Cartier.

    Don’t miss visiting this manor house, a moving testimony to its well known owner Jacques Cartier (1491-1557). It’s a rare example of a great 16th century explorer’s home. Jacques Cartier opened up the North American continent to the French via the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. The manor house, fore-runner of the ‘malouinières’ (homes of St. Malo sea-farers) and the favourite home of Cartier and his wife Catherine des Granches, has been restored and furnished to illustrate both the everyday life and the travels of its famous owner. From the kitchen with its red clay floor, to the explorer’s bedroom, this museum has lost none of its period charm.
