Silversea Luxury Cruises A Trois-Rivieres

Trois-Rivieres

Where the Rivière St. Maurice divides into three channels, the town that grew up around it came to be known as Trois-Rivières (Three Rivers). Today it’s a busy industrial hub but still retains pleasant shady streets and historical sites; a bygone iron and steel mill are worth a look. The town is also a good base for exploring the waterfalls and rock faces of the Parc National de la Mauricie, just 64 km (40 miles) away.

Experience the beauty, history and storied past of Trois-Rivières during this scenic, half-day walking tour of the city's Historical District.

Depart the pier for a guided, approximately 90-minute walking tour through the Historical District of Trois-Rivières. Along the way, explore the city's rich and evocative history, culture and 18th-century architecture. Highlights of your walking tour include the Manoir de Tonnancour. Built in 1723 and once a military officer's barracks, the Manoir is now occupied by the Galerie d'art du Parc, a contemporary art exhibition centre.


Place d'Armes and Gothic Cathedral

Next, pass through Place d'Armes, where much of the early fur trading took place, and historic monuments and buildings before arriving at the Gothic Cathedral. Opened in 1858, the Cathedral is adorned with beautiful stained glass windows representing the Litanies of the Virgin.


Old Prison of Trois-Rivières

Your last stop is at the Old Prison of Trois-Rivières. Built in 1822, the prison was designated a historic monument in 1978. Before closing in 1986, Trois-Rivières' Old Prison was the oldest functional corrections establishment in Canada. During your tour, learn about the storied history of the prison, and pass by the original dank, cramped cells and terrifying confinement areas endured by the convicts. Following your visit, you may opt to commence the short walk back to the pier, or visit the Musée Québécois de Culture Populaire on your own before returning to the ship on-foot.

Once part of a Hydro-Québec transmission tower, you'll enjoy a spectacular view of the hydroelectric dams, the aluminum plant as well as the surrounding countryside and Maurice River. Returning to ground level you will pass through the exhibition hall, The Ages of Energy. For millennia, mankind's only sources of energy were fire, wind, water and physical strength. The invention of the steam engine changed things once and for all. More recently, oil and electricity have created a world more dependent on energy than ever. What will tomorrow's energy source be? This dynamic exhibition takes a fresh look at the energy issues that already dominate global headlines!
