The municipality of Port-Daniel–Gascons proudly announces that it now has its very own virtual pages of history. We invite you to browse through them and discover this remarkable area, which has indeed greatly improved since the merging of its two century-old towns, Port-Daniel and Ste-Germaine de l’Anse-aux-Gascons. Its oceans, forests, mountains, valleys, stories and legends are treasures for all to explore, as they make up - according to Radio-Canada Matane’s listeners - one of the Gaspé Coast’s seven wonders.
The area history has been intimately associated with the building of the railway. You are therefore invited aboard on a journey through this land of culture, tourism, trade, community and recreation: From Jacques Cartier to Gabrielle Roy and Marc Aurèle Fortin… From the Colborne shipwreck to the Maison LeGrand with its century-old train station and dramatic railroad tunnel… Through the quaint fishing harbours… Port-Daniel–Gascons is yours to visit and discover!
We hope that this website will charm you into paying us a first visit, coming back to see us or, even better, into settling down with your family in this breathtaking area of unique hospitality.
Enjoy your visit!
