The Point-a-la-Renommee Lighthouse is a Canadian Historic Site in Gaspesie along the Gaspesie Peninsula in L'Anse-a-Valleau. This is along Highway 132 in the Gulf of St Lawrence in Quebec, Canada. The Point-a-la-Renommee Lighthouse is considered the most travelled lighthouse in the world and many people come from all over to see it. It has a colourful history and is a famous Canadian landmark to visit.
The Point-a-la-Renomme Lighthouse has a guided tour, which is highly recommended by all who have visited the lighthouse and urge others to do the same if they have the privilege of visiting someday. It's always better when you are at a historic location if you can take a guided tour so that you get the most out of your visit and learn all that you can from an expert on the subject.
The Point-a-la-Renommee Lighthouse was only returned to this site in 1997 as the lighthouse used to stand in the Port of Quebec for over 20 years. Finally, it was returned to this location, which is the site of North America's first maritime radio station. The radio station was installed by Marconi in 1904 and visitors can see evidence of that for themselves today.
