  • Magnifique et vaste !
  • Visited in spring this time. Great expansive views. You can walk run and bike in historic park setting. Wonderful!
  • 350 steps up Governor's Walk....Promenade des Gouverneurs....but well worth it. Can continue around and on top of old wall for a nice walk.
  • Great place for a little dose of history and nature. You can walk to the famous Chateau Frontenac from there while admiring the gorgeous Saint Lawrence river scenery. Must do while in the city.
  • Again this is a must see place in Qubec city. Do not miss this and give it ample amount of time. You can drive here close to the spot which is good.
