I love the parliament area. The building is gorgeous, the gardens are unbelievable, and the fountain is really cool. Hearing the story of how it's super old from a department store in Paris and then moved here was interesting too. I always enjoy coming here.

This was a beautiful fountain and the story behind it was as well. It was a chilly day on our visit, but I wouldn’t wat to miss it while there. Beautiful landscaping all around.

This a spectacular fountain situated at the top of the old town, it forms a roundabout on the edge of the new town districts adjacent to the war memorial and old town gate.

This fountain is in front of the Provincial Parliament building. It is nicely designed and interesting to see. However, with traffic coming and going in the roundabout taking a picture is difficult.

This was another item that was on my tour of Old Quebec. The fountain is very ornamental and quite lovely to look at. Don't miss seeing it.

Beautiful, Historic fountain - The fountain is in front of the Parliament Building at an intersection with cars passing by. It is difficult to take photos with the cars passing .
