  • A must visit place in Quebec. Free guided tours in both French and English, just call ahead to confirm timings. The guides are very knowledgeable and eager, and it is quite the place to set your history lessons straight. They also have a boutique and restaurant inside, and a free cloakroom too.
  • Beautiful building and grounds area. Lots of history and worth seeing.
  • Free tours. Check their website for times in English and French. They help you understand Canadian Government and how it differs from other countries. (Queen, Governor, Lt Governor, Speaker, elected Representatives).
  • Could not go inside.. but the outside is already spectacular!
  • Historically and architecturally fascinating. Lots of construction out front but free visit inside is great.
