This little fisherman 's church is a delight to visit. The peace and comfort makes it accessible to all. One can sit quietly and say a prayer, light a candle for a loved one's memory or simply sit and enjoy a moment of serenity.

It's a nice little Chapelle on the water front near the shipping yard. It's a place to show respect to all these hard worker fisherman. after your little chapelle visit you can enjoy a nice long walk to the next fort
