  • Don't miss the visit worth it. Ask you if you're in Europe so the architecture is unique. Several good restaurants nearby.

  • A place unique, inspirational Malo (Saint-Malo, Brittany, France), charming in all seasons. Cafes, pedestrian areas on the front in summer, unreal atmosphere under the lanterns and snow in winter. A staple of old Quebec City.
