Billed as "the world's most travelled lighthouse," due to the fact that it spent twenty years in the Port of Quebec, the Pointe-à-la-Renommée Lighthouse is by far one of the most spectacular maritime sites on the north Gaspé coast. The history of the light is an interesting one. The current lighthouse dates to 1906 and was built adjacent to an existing, earlier light dating to 1880. In 1904, the site was chosen by wireless telegraphy pioneer Guglielmo Marconi as the location for the first maritime radio station in North America.
Cap de la Madeleine - Lighthouse
At picturesque Cap de la Madeleine, on the south side of the mouth of the St. Lawrence River, it is seventy-five miles (120 kilometres) to the north shore. Long before there was a lighthouse at the point, ship captains used the cape to establish their position on the river. Approval for a lighthouse at this strategic spot came in 1868, with an expected completion date in 1870, but the construction materials were lost when the schooner carrying them was overcome by a heavy gale and disabled. The hexagonal, wooden lighthouse stood fifty-four feet from its base to the vane on its lantern and was put into operation on August 21, 1871 by Philip Savage, who earned an annual salary of $300 as the light’s first keeper.

The massive rocky cliff is called by several names, such as le Rocher Percé, Pierced Rock, Pierced Island, Split Rock or Percé Rock. The name is attributed to the pierced rock that formed an arch 15 metres (49 ft) high on its seaward southern end, as though a needle had cut through the rock. It was named Percé ("pierced rock") by Samuel de Champlain in 1607.

Cap d'Espoir - Lighthouse
Cap d’Espoir, a promontory at the north-east entrance to Chaleur Bay, was noted on English charts and even by the Department of Marine as “Cape Despair,” a phonetic sounding of the French name, which is totally opposite of its translation, “Cape of Hope.” A lighthouse on Cap d'Espoir was proposed as early as 1868 to enable the fishermen, when coming from Miscou Bank in thick weather, to find safe harbour. Parliament voted $1,000 in 1871 for a lighthouse on the cape, but the funds were deemed insufficient, and construction was delayed until a sufficient additional sum could be obtained to build and equip a good sea light.
