“Place Royale”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

Place Royale is a small square in Old Quebec City. It was beautifully decorated for the holidays and had a fresh coating of snow the first day we arrived. As with Petit Champlain, the cobbleston streets make you feel as though you are in Europe. A good museum is located in the square as well as several art galleries.

You don't need to spend a lot of time there, but don't miss it.

“Walking back in time”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Place Royale is a small square inside the lower village of old Quebec City. It has cobblestone streets, stone-faced buildings and many little shops. The buildings have a very old European feel, like you've traveled back in time to early France. A must-see while you're in Quebec City.

We walked through here a few times. Enjoyed people watching, enjoyed our self guided tour as well. This was a nice location to take photos of the old city center.

“Site of the first permanent French settlement in North America”
Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

This plaza marks the very site where Samuel Champlain founded the city of Quebec. Though none of the original buildings are left, the sote of Champlain's first tradong post & storehouse are noted.
