    Mauricie: Land of giants

    Mauricie: an almost mythical territory of Quebec. Singers, storytellers and film directors have sung its praises. From La Tuque to Trois-Rivières, Maskinongé to Sainte-Anne-de-la-Pérade, the majestic St. Lawrence River and its tributaries have helped the region grow and develop.
