A small-scale, walled, old city (discounting the modern, fuller place of which it is a part) this is lightly reminiscent of yet older such cities in France (thinking of Chinon or Loches), the quaintness of which have not translated fully to North America. But it is what we have, and that is worth a visit. Canadian French adds to the ambience for an English speaker. The parks, the terrasses, the narrow streets, the hyper-cleanliness of Canadians (almost like Switzerland), the considerable variety of gustatory establishments serving one’s need for replenishment, the museums, the Citadelle, the architecture, constantly-renewed that refers to bygone centuries, and the pleasantness, the politesse of Canadians make for an enjoyable visit here. We stayed four satisfying nights and could have probably seen as much with three, but not at as relaxed a pace.
