Phare de Cap-des-Rosiers / Lighthouse

Phare de Cap-des-Rosiers / Lighthouse

Érigé entre 1853 et 1858 et classé monument historique en 1977, le phare de Cap-des-Rosiers est le plus haut phare du Canada. «Une lanterne à facettes multiples repose à 34 mètres de hauteur.» «Le revêtement extérieur de brique et de stucco de la tour en pierre a été remplacé en 1984 par du marbre blanc.»

«This 34 metre high stone light-tower, perched atop rugged cliffs, is the tallest lighthouse in Canada. The exposed point of land is at the mouth of the St. Lawrence River where it enters the Gulf of the St. Lawrence. Built between 1853 and 1858, the lighthouse has never since stopped to guide ships navigating these treacherous waters.»
