“Beautiful grounds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We were there on a Sunday so government building was closed. Would've love to go inside. However, the grounds are well groomed with great photo opportunities of the building.

“A highlight of any visit to Quebec city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

I think a visit to Quebec city without seeing Place Royale in the downtown area is simply missing something. Place Royale is definitely one of the beautiful marks of Quebec city that provide a look at the city's history and its charming European style.

“Look Around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

You probably will pass thru this area looking for the mural, but it is a place you need to visit. Again the galleries and shops are great and stop in at the small church, we were there with a beautiful moon. What a beautiful scene.

“Beautiful place in the lower part of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Il old Quebec, just walk around the Place Royale and you'll think you're in Europe. Nice old Church in the middle surrounded by renovated original buildings dating back to the 18th century.

“Old world charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

This is like traveling back in time. The streets are amazing stone. The houses are
Living history. You must stop into LadyKookie to grab a pastry or Macaroon, they are wonderful.
We caught a wedding this afternoon coming from Notre Dame church, great timing.
