Located south of the St. Lawrence, between the river and the Appalachians, the Centre-du-Québec has a population of about 240,000 inhabitants. Drummondville, the region's capital, is a lively city that enjoys a covetable quality of life along with several events and attractions, including the Village québécois d'antan and the Mondial des Cultures. In addition, it benefits from a public beach and a 183-km bicycle network.
The Centre-du-Québec boasts buildings with a vast array of architectural styles, which convey the region's rich architectural heritage. For instance, the Cinéma Capitol, downtown Drummondville, is an Art Deco structure built in 1937. Let's not forget the Résidence des frères du Sacré-Coeur de Victoriaville and the Académie d'Inverness, a neo-Italian inspired school erected in 1889 in the municipality of Inverness.Show more
