Go see it! The sights are amazing. A true winter wonderland. Make the trip to the (over priced but fun) Ice Hotel!

Day after Christmas, snowy and cold we walked the 300+ stairs through the promenade and through the park. Invigorating experience!

This was a nice place to take a stroll, and enjoy the environment. It was a rainy day, but the flowers in the Joan of Arc Gardens were beautiful. It reminded me of the "Assiniboine Park" in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The tour guides were great, and they do speak English. They were a lot of fun, and very informative. It is within walking distance of the Manoir Victoria.

What we saw was a large open space without explanation of what had happened there in the 18th century. That is done in some nearby museums, but for those of us who don't want too many museum experiences in the middle of summer, it would be good to know what went on at this site.
