Tucked between the majestic St. Lawrence River and the forest, Les Méchins is known worldwide for its naval shipyard, Verreault Navigation, one of the rare shipyards in the world to be run by a woman. On site, all you have to do is follow the yard’s crane and you will surely end up at the dry dock, where you can take in the activities of this gigantic maritime industry.
The salt air of Les Méchins, the magnificent sunsets and the vast open spaces know how to satisfy nature lovers. It is without a doubt for the same reasons that four motion pictures where filmed here.
Les Méchins also has a significant heritage merit. Several century-old houses, very well preserved, add to the area’s particular character.
