Mediterranean in Shawinigan since 2018, I am passionate about all the diverse and varied arts and cultures that make up Quebec and Canada. Discovery and new experiences are my fuel, even more if they are done with friends.

Parc Saint-Maurice et Tapiskwan sipi (rivière Saint-Maurice in Atikamekw)

We are lucky to be able to enjoy this magnificent urban park everyday and all year long. It also offers a lot of activities in the summer. Surrounded by the Saint-Maurice River, Downtown Shawinigan is always very popular with my European friends and family.

Tous les jours dimanche

One of the best bakeries I know and, believe me, I know a few. 😉 Gourmands and gourmets will certainly find happiness in the sweets, the salty and the team’s smiles!

Auger Restaurant

For a traditional north-american breakfast, this diner, located right downtown, will enchant the European tourists, that’s for sure. The service is always friendly, and the breakfast plates are of high competition.

Espace culturel Onikam

Recently opened and surviving the pandemic, I think it’s important to mention this cultural center that highlights aboriginal cultures – mainly the Atikamekw culture. Being on their ancestral territory, Shawinigan is a place of cultural sharing, promoting the visibility of First Nations cultures. Exhibits and art workshops are offered all year round by a dynamic team.
