The Bassin is a delightful area overlooking the harbor. It is filled with cafes, offering wonderful mussels and other seafood. Great place to enjoy a beer, have a snack and take in the view.

Hi ! Every Saturday morning, near the Ste Catherine church, a market is held. There is also an organic market, on Wednesday mornings I believe. This will have to be confirmed by someone who still lives in town.
