Known as the craft and wood-carving capital of Quebec, the small town of Saint-Jean-Port-Joli boasts the largest concentration of craftspeople in the province. Numerous craft shops, galleries and workshops line Route 132. The town was also home to Philippe Aubert de Gaspé senior (1786-1871), author of Les Anciens Canadiens (1863) which earned him fame and glory in later life, after a prison sentence.
