On the trail of your ancestors in the Marennes Basin

The Marennes Basin is the birthplace of Samuel de Champlain, founder of Quebec City. Walk in his footsteps and those of your ancestors. You can visit the ports from which many ships left to cross the Atlantic, to fish in Newfoundland or to settle in New France.

Contemplate the landscapes that your ancestors experienced before they decided to seek a new life and start a family from which you may be descended.
