À l’origine, le site de Trois-Rivières est fréquenté par des autochtones de la grande famille algonquine. En 1535, l’explorateur Jacques Cartier va décrire le site; en 1599, le capitaine Dupont-Gravé va le nommer : «Trois-Rivières». Enfin, en 1603, le géographe Samuel de Champlain va noter qu’il serait avantageux d’y établir une habitation permanente, qui sera finalement érigée par un dénommé Laviolette, le 4 juillet 1634. D’abord comptoir de commerce, Trois-Rivières va ensuite développer cette triple vocation qu’elle va conserver au fil des siècles : (1) siège de gouvernement, (2) ville d’éducation et (3) cité industrielle.
Trois-Rivières is the centre and capital of the Mauricie region of Quebec. It lies at the halfway point between Montreal and Quebec City, on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River. It was founded in 1634 By Laviolette, the second permanent settlement in New France. Its location at the three-pronged mouth of the Saint-Maurice River is the source of its name, which is French for three rivers. Historically, Trois-Rivières was sometimes referred to in English as Three Rivers, although in modern times it is always referred to as Trois-Rivières in both English and French. The city's inhabitants are known as "Trifluviens" (Trifluvians).
Trois-Rivières has an internationally known racetrack named Circuit Trois-Rivières. The track hosts American Le Mans series, NASCAR Canadian Tire Series, and the Formula Atlantic events .
Notable landmarks include the Forges du Saint-Maurice, a foundry dating back to the 1730s, the Ursulines Monastery, and Notre-Dame-du-Cap Basilica.
The old part of the city composed of century-old buildings housing a great variety of cafés, restaurants, clubs, bars, and shops. In winter time, the area is regularly closed to vehicular traffic to accommodate various festivals and events, turning the downtown core into a pedestrian mall. Trois-Rivières is officially the "National Poetry Capital of Quebec". Numerous plaques displaying poetic verses are installed across the centre of the city, and its International Festival of Poetry (held each year in the first week of October) honours this title.
