  • Old prison of Trois-Rivières

    Old prison of Trois-Rivières

    Entering the Old Prison will take you far beyond your imagination. Much more than a historical building, it offers a glimpse into the lives of prisoners during the 1960's and 70's. A unique experience in a unique setting where the guides are former inmates whose personal experiences reveal a totally different reality - that of the cells, dungeons, the "hole", the chapel and the parlour!
