Discover the local heritage

The Halte des Zouaves also showcases the local history and in the former fire hall tower, with its mini interpretation centre, you can learn a little bit about the history of this fascinating building with its unusual architecture. As you stroll through the village along the interesting heritage trail, you’ll find out the origin of the word Piopolis.

A podcast In the Footsteps of the Pioneers is also available to discover the hsitory of Piopolis.

A “tasty” village

Whether it’s the legendary sugar pie from the general store in the village or the tasty meals served at the Auberge au Soleil Levant, you’ll love the gourmet delights created in this Coeur villageois.

So many things to discover

Finding that special something among the dozens of treasures at L’Est Passe-Temps boutique shouldn’t be too difficult. The Maison culturelle Laurier-Gauthier is another great spot where an exhibition of stone artefacts - « Les pierres qui font jaser », is on display.

You might also be lucky enough to catch one of the concerts staged in the church at the end of the year, during the St-Zénon-de-Piopolis Festival.

Village Jetty

Stop at the village jetty, a stone’s throw from the marina. What a setting! It won’t take too long to fall under the spell of the magnificent lake ringed by majestic mountains. As you walk towards the lighthouse, you’ll see a pergola with a sail-shaped roof and benches fashioned after the hull of a boat – an ideal spot to take a break and enjoy a picnic. At this meeting place, you’re sure to come across a couple of local residents and maybe some fishermen who will be happy to brag about the size of their catch!

You can also rent nautical crafts at Soltice Plein Air to explore the Megantic lake.

A Walk Into Nature

Several trails fan out from the Halte, giving you the opportunity to stretch your legs. Try the ascent of the Scotch Cap, a short and easy hike to do near the village.
