    Les vieilles Forges du Saint-Maurice

    by violette_ca Updated Jun 5, 2007

    At the north of the city, 20 minutes away from downtown.

    Interesting history about the first industrial community, first iron industry.

    In 1670, a French ironmaster assured the intendant of New France, Jean Talon, of the very high quality of iron are found in the area of Trois-Rivières. A year later, the intendant indeed had 800 tonnes of are extracted, but many years would go by before any industrial development actually took place.

    Le Parc que de la Mauricie, est un des plus grands parc national, endroit parfait pour le canoe/camping, vélo de montagne (VTT) randonnée pédestre et ski de fond en hiver. Surtout vous devez aller au Chutes Weber : vous ferez pres de 5 km en canoe et après 2 km de marche et là un paradis de cascade, le départ se fait à partir du Wapizagongue Nord.
