This plaza / square is celebrated as the founding site for Canada. We didn't have much time there, but the quaint shops and historic buildings surrounding the plaza could have been explored for an hour or more!

A small and beautiful courtyard surrounded by a church, nice old buildings and Louis XIV Statue at the center place. Around the corner is the world famous La Fresque des Quebecois wall mural. You must not miss viewing this spectacular 5 stories high wall mural.

Really. There are so many things to do and see instead. Better to put your entry money to charity. Not too informative, there is a part of the second floor where one is warned that it is sort of an experiment. BE CAREFUL. They do not tell you that the floor is sort of like a bog. Also, on the...

Place Royale in Quebec City is among the few places where it allow you to recall the memory of the early 1600 era. Starting with the museum located in the square immediate to the area, a visitor can spend some learning the life style, dress style, living conditions and various remains from the past.

Visited Quebec City in October and saw all of the area including Place Royale which is an interesting part of Old Quebec. Some beautiful buildings in a very small area of Quebec but well worth checking out.

It is to be expected that in summer a small square will be bustling with people. It can be hard to navigate around the endless groups of tourists occasionally. Despite that it is a lovely place to soak up the European feeling that lives in the whole city.

So thrilling to visit an area that has been treasured and protected from modern renovations. The streets are cobbled, the buildings old brick and you can imagine the life of past residents.

From the moment you step foot here, you will be in awe of the architecture! Church bells ringing, artists singing, maple treats, horse drawn carriages. A must see for any historian!
