Fresh goods baked in an old-fashioned clay oven are also available. Guided & self-guided tours. A multifunctional Welcome Center features a pop art exhibit by islander Alfred Desgagnés, a mid-Lenten mask exhibit, as well as a media room that gives insight into the habits and customs of the islanders.
