Tour d'observation Hydro-Québec- La Cité de l'énergie Learn


From atop the observation tower, once part of a Hydro-Québec steel tower, you'll enjoy a spectacular view of Shawinigan and its surrounding areas. At 115 meters high, it is the second highest tower in Quebec. Zoom to the summit in a panoramic elevator.
This steel tower, symbolizing electrical energy, quickly became the landmark of Cité de l'énergie. Contemplate the beautiful landscapes of La Mauricie and the quality of urban lifestyle in Shawinigan.
