About Gaspé

Gaspé is a city with an intoxicating mix of regional cultures, sitting at the tip of the Gaspé Peninsula in the immense region of eastern Quebec. It's surrounded by dramatic rock faces, pounding surf and jagged coasts dotted with lighthouses. It's also home to an abundance of flora and fauna.

The Gaspé Peninsula, situated along the coast of the majestic St Lawrence River, is the birthplace of Canada, where Jacques Cartier first claimed the land for France. It contains four national parks, including Bonaventure Island, and the massive Percé Rock (one of the world's largest natural arches sitting in water), as well as over 200,000 northern gannets.

In town you can explore Gaspé's maritime heritage and legendary hospitality. The modern Gaspé cathedral is built almost entirely of wood, with beautiful stained glass. The Musée de la Gaspésie tells of Jacques Cartier's voyages, and the Anglo-French struggle for power over this region.
