(4.8/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
See the cradle of French civilization in North America at Place Royale, a historic square around which Quebec was established in 1608. Visit the oldest stone church in North America, featuring a suspended model of a ship from its barrel vault ceiling, and learn about the history of the first colonists of New France at the museum. Admire a large mural depicting the life of colonists from various stages of Quebec's history, and stroll the historic cobbled streets lined with cafes, restaurants, and shops.
