Lower Town (Basse-Ville), Quebec City

(4.8/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
Consider riding the funicular down from the boardwalk to explore the cobbled lanes of Lower Town (Basse-Ville), a World Heritage Site since 1985. Today the town represents a popular tourist destination brimming with European atmosphere that features some of the colony's first houses with architecture from the 17th and 18th centuries. Small streetside shops offer artisan products and souvenirs, and museums and art galleries will familiarize you with the area's culture. Plan your visit to Lower Town (Basse-Ville) and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Quebec City vacation builder.
