The inescapable Cité de l'énergie, its Science Centre and the museum of Prime Minister Jean Chrétien.

The Centre d'exposition Léo-Ayotte and Centre des arts of Shawinigan.
A divine detour by the church Saint-Pierre to see the magnificent stained-glass windows made by Guido Nincheri,  and by the charming little church of Notre-Dame-De-La-Présentation which is gathering in its walls the last great project realized by the painter Ozias Leduc.

A stop at Parc Des Centenaires for a little hike near the falls or to access the cycling path close to Shawinigan River.

Walking on 5th Street,  to discover Shawinigan downtown, the boutiques, restaurants and bars..

And, at the end of the day, a little detour by la Promenade St-Maurice will take you close to the beautiful Saint-Maurice river where some terraces awaits you with goo foods or, why not, have a beer at la Micro-Brasserie le Trou Du Diable.
