Come and explore the Virginia garden located in the heart of the charming village of Havre-Saint-Pierre. Located on the waterfront and near the visitor and interpretation centre, this garden highlights the diversity and rarity of many plants found here.
Observe beautiful plants such as the Mingan thistle, the Gulf of St. Lawrence dandelion and the sparrow’s egg lady’s slipper, even if you don’t end up going to the islands. Learn more about Brother Marie-Victorin who stayed in Minganie between 1924 and 1928, and discover the ties that connected him to the locals.
From the garden, admire some of the many islands of the archipelago, just a stone’s throw from the departure points. Take advantage of this harmonious place to relax and breathe in the fresh sea air. Let yourself be tempted by an excursion at sea to discover the wonders of the Mingan Islands.
