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!

The uneven cobbles of the square add to the Old World charm. A museum with changing exhibits, Notre Dame of the Victories and many shops and pubs encompass the area. To the left of the church, down the street is a nice ice cream shop. Public restrooms to the right of Notre Dame.

Enjoyed the architecture and the small Notre Dame church there, built on the site of Samuel Champlain's first home.

Interesting to learn about the times of old Quebec as well as what continues to occur today in the same area. We see the area thru the years. My only disappointment was the 3 D movie. I was expecting to hear and see more about Champlain only to discover it was more to do with an artist painting the man... More

A taste of Nouvelle France. A highlight of our visit to Vieux Quebec. Historic and lovely, and a site the whole family enjoyed.
