The square is decorated beautifully for Christmas. Very picturesque and charming with large lit Christmas tree. Must visit the Notre Dame des Victories church located in the square.

This square definitely transports you back to a different time. It is very pretty and always has full flower boxes. It's really busy and crowded in this area, very touristy. If you can get past that, it is definitely worth a stop.

This is a nice and charming area of Old Quebec with cobblestone streets. Not to miss are the Notre Dame des Victories (oldest stone church in North America) and the most often photographed wall portraying the influential people in the history of Quebec.

Place Royale is so adorable. The stone streets, architecture, shops, cafes, church. It is so charming. Our hotel was within walking distance (like pretty much everything else in Quebec City) and we enjoyed spending time in Place Royale.

There is no Casino near old Quebec. There is a casino north of downtown but you have to cross the river to get there. It's quite a distance away.

Sorry, I don’t know. I saw a nice cassino in La Malbaie in front of the elegant hotel Manier Richelieu.

Hi, How close is it? Very close, it's only a 2 min walk from Place Royale. If you go up to the Chateau, then it's an other story!
