Trois-Rivières: The must-see stopover between Montreal and Quebec city

The second city founded by the French in North America, Trois-Rivières is just as notable for its contemporary style as for its historic soul, hence its elegant charm.

A city with many hidden corners, Trois-Rivières unpretentiously displays the venerable charm and cozy intimacy of its classified historic district, sophisticated restaurants, audacious museums, stylish B&Bs, numerous art galleries and many festivals. Trois-Rivières is also a window onto the St. Lawrence, which fits in naturally with its urban landscape, and adds character to the effervescence of the downtown pedestrian zone.

Trois-Rivières’s location at the confluence of the Saint-Maurice and Saint Lawrence rivers and at the halfway point between Montreal and Quebec City lends this vibrant city to many travellers who pass through as they discover the province of Quebec. It is definitely worth the stopover with its delicious restaurants and rich history which is on display for all to see in its museums, parks and visitor attractions.

The Arts are also well represented in Trois Riviéres. La Galerie d’Art du Park holds large collections of contemporary art, while concerts and festivals celebrate special events such as the National Biennial of Contemporary Sculpture. With events for children and adults, Trois Riviéres has something to attract every visitor. For sports, art, and history, the city is an ideal place to visit.
