This small square is located at the lower town of Quebec, at Petit Champlain. As the rest of the city, it's full of small shops and restaurants which don't belong to any big, well-known companies. The square is also very cozy and sociable. It just shows how Quebec is. It describes the city perfectly.

Pretty little square with a couple cafes. Just a couple blocks from the Funicular. Smith's cafe is good place for a coffee and pastry. The square does get crowded mid morning until dusk as many tour groups pass through.

Surrounded by history, murals, a stone built church and stone buildings housing restaurants and shops in a historical cobblestone square. Awesome !!

You could believe you are in a mid-size Normandy town, but this is North America for sure. Amble about and take in the melting pot of culture and history

This has nice off the beaten path feel. The architecture is beautiful not to mention that Samuel du Champlain built a house here in the 1600's. Its very laid back and relaxing. Definitely do a walking tour to get the most of the experience of being here. Stunning churches and an interesing mural around the corner.

This is a wonderful spot to take a break in lovely, historic surroundings. A popular mural is nearby, there is a church to visit, and a few restaurants and shops surround the square. One of those shops has a large selection of artisan crafts, which make great souvenirs or gifts. We were there around dinner time and found that the... More

Couldn't believe this little church had paintings on the walls dating back to the 1600's. Amazing! Nice architecture, beautiful little church.

The square is very interesting and the architecture done in domes and medieval construction. There is usually some performer on the square and they have bleachers for one to sit.

Charming square in Quebec with preserved old houses, a church, the bust of Louis XIV and many shops. A good place to sit and admire the old constructions. It looks like you are in a medieval village!
