  • You cannot visit Quebec City without a tour of the Plains. This is the place of great gatherings (snow pentathlon, summer festival, St-Jean show...).

  • I visit le Parc des Champs-de-Bataille every time I visit Quebec city. My partner and I love walking and the parc is part of our typical morning walk.  more »
  • This Grand Park situated in the high part of the city was a historic battle stage, today a vast lawn with several wooded areas give a surprising color. You will be spotted from the top of the São Lourenço River that bathes the city. One Can take a good walk through the location that is pleasant, especially at the end of the summer.

  • Beautiful area to visit. Lots of people there to take photos and enjoy the scenery. I took a walk around the neighbourhood, very beautiful old buildings that are very quaint and picturesque. Love the European feel to the area, and the amazing history of the battles that took place over 200 years ago.
  • nice and beautiful place with history. It's really worth come to visit
  • Very good ice rink with another for hockey games. They clean the ice every 2 hours.
  • A great Canadian heritage site! A wonderful spot! If in Quebec City, this is nit to be missed.
  • Great views. Romantic. Walks. Pictures. Relaxing. Like being in nature in the middle of the city.
