The new and the old towers of the La Marte Lighthouse on the St. Lawrence River, Gaspe Peninsula, east of Sainte-Anne-des Monts in La Martre, Quebec, Canada. It is also known as Rivière à la Martre and La Martre de Gaspé. Obviously the old 1878 tower no longer stands, but the new one, built in 1908, still does and is now painted red. There is a welcome center and a gift shop at the site.
