Vernacular Architecture thrives in Conche, NL

The road to the French Shore will ultimately take you to Conche, NL. This is a must see Town on the North Eastern part of the Great Northern Peninsula. One must stop at the French Shore Interpretation Centre, where you will get the opportunity to see a 222 ft tapestry that has been embroidered on Jacobean linen by local women of Conche and designed by J. C. Roy.

After a visit to the centre, I recommend you take some time to explore the colourful homes and outer dwellings that scream Rural Newfoundland & Labrador.

I have only shared a sample of the many wonders one can find in the Heritage Corridor of Conche. One must see it for themselves to truly understand the marvels of its beauty.
