The delicious fragrance of smoked herring you can smell when heading toward the wharf, that is also Cap-Pelé!

The Smokehouse Museum, located in Cap-Pelé’s Information Centre is a historical gem just waiting to be discovered. When visiting the museum, you learn that these smokehouses prepare almost 95% of the world’s smoked herring; it’s living an experience and a family know-how through the words of the guide Artémise l’enfileuse and her peers.

Discover a little piece of heaven by tasting Cap-Pelé’s local flavours! And don’t forget to share your experience by using the hashtags #muséeboucanière and #RFMSE.
