  • Place Royale, is literally a small square where the Cathedral and some restaurants. Does not have any such besides the fact the admiring the architecture and tourists taking photos. But if after a long walk, you want to rest or eat something is a good point. At Christmas there is a very large tree where a choir sings Christmas carols. It is a stop very fast, I no lo dedicaria a day, is the only step.

  • At Christmas time the square is very charming. Part of the beautiful historic centre of quebec. Must-see.

  • Little piece of historic Quebec City. Popular tourist attraction. A little glimpse for a step back in time. Presence of small Museum of local culture for those who want to delve into. Unfortunately also prtesenza many shops for tourists with cheap souvenirs. If you have the good fortune to spend in time of little turnout is very cute.
