There is this large painting on the side of one of the houses in the old town. It features both old and modern figures and scenes from the city. Unfortunately there is a portaloo right by it, being unsightly. The painting isn't really my cup...More

This rather large mural depicts the history of Quebec City as well as some of the key people in its history. The mural took a lot of work to make and it fits into the neighbourhood that it sits which is in old town.

Came across this spot accidentally. I took some lovely pictures. It was difficult to tell where the cobblestone street ended and the mural started!

This fresco depicts the history of the city and its inhabitants and was commissioned between 1999 and 2008 to celebrate 400 years of the city’s existence. It's fantastic.

I love the frescoes all over Quebec, and this is perhaps the best. The entire history of Quebec in one artistic expanse of trompe l'oeil. Don't miss it.

These frescoes tell the story of the founding and history of Quebec in pictures. Totally engaging, with beautiful colors and depictions of people and places that are central to the Quebecois culture.
