Cute!

Love this area! It is so cute and has so much history behind it. There are also some cool little shops and cafes. There are also a couple of museums.

Take comfortable walking shoes, very hilly. Beautiful and has tons of old world charm. Plenty of places to eat. Take your camera as there are lots of opportunity to take great pictures.

Small square with a church, gift shop and coffeehouses. The old buildings are amazing and their maintenance is telling you that are living people which care about their environment. Is just wonderful and a place where you can sit down in the middle and enjoy the small square and rest a bit before continuing your tour.

You might well think you are in a square in France or Italy when strolling around the square. There are outdoor cafes, an historic church, shops, cobblestone streets, wonderful murals and pedestrian friendly parkettes often with street musicians. It all adds up to an unforgettable experience right here in Canada.

Interesting architecture around the square, roofs had to be steeper than in France because of the snow. Some houses are older than others. All of the original structures were made of wood but were burned, so newer construction had to be stones or bricks. Do not miss the Church.

Place Royale is my favorite square in Quebec City, including the church of Notre Dame de la Victoire, which is gray stone on the outside and then all white on the inside. There are some shops and cafes, and it seemed quieter in Bas-Vill than in Haute-Ville, which made the experience more enjoyable.

My husband and I loved viewing Place Royale. It is so quaint with the well kept stone-faced buildings and beautiful window boxes. There is a little chapel, a museum and plenty of little shops. You could also hear musicians playing for the tourists. You feel like you are in Europe or in another century. There are benches in the middle... More
