I had been a very big fan of history especially the eseven years war. For me this was a moment where I was taken to where the most decisive battle of the conflict took place. It was a very powerful time for me. There are beautiful views everywhere. It is so hard to believe this pastoral setting was the scene... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the National Battlefields Park Museum, which included the three-theatre presentation, “Odyssey: a Journey through History on the Plains of Abraham.” The presentation, which surveys Québec City’s history using a focus on the Plains of Abraham, was not only informative, but often whimsical and amusing. A fascinating museum exhibit follows the last of the three theatres.

An easy walk and a peaceful setting now. Good views while walking and usually not too crowded. It covers a large area so do as much or as little as you want.

Very much enjoyed the history lesson provided at the Battlefields Park on the Plains of Abraham. The park is easily walkable and the venues are low cost and high in historic value. Whether you are a Canadian or a American there is a lot of history that is brought forward here that wasn;t taught in history classes!

We discovered the park our first day and take a daily jaunt, discovering more each time. This is a great place to stroll or run. The nature trail is very relaxing and so verdant in the summer. Check out the fountains, the views, and the beautiful gardens. My favorite was the St. Joan of Arc statue and gardens. This is... More

I made a tour visit, arranged in the tourism' office, with my wife and I adored. I was lucky to get a young female tourist guide that it was so nice and informative. Look for Noémie Martin-Chouinard. The day was rainy and my Canon complain a little bit but I got out knowing a little bit why the French and... More

This is a real bargain for first time visitors. The bus tour guides, picked up at the Discovery Station inside the park, are humorous, informative and well versed in the history of this famous site.
