We walked around Petit Champlain and ran into this area. It's like a plaza with some old buildings. They are beautiful, but other than seeing there wasn't anything else to do!

This is just a must see. I mean, who doesn't want to feel totally transported back to cobblestone streets of France? But you are not. This square really visually drives home the rich French roots of Quebec City. It is also the home of the Notre-Dame-des-Victoires which happens to be THE oldest stone church in N. America. You can stroll around the shoppes close by, for example, we got our Quebec City swag here and then grabbed a coffee for me and coco for my girls. We went back on several occasions making a point to walk through this area on our way to close by art galleries, restaurants, and local museums. Everywhere you look there is something delicious to eat! The food in Quebec was simply amazing! A marriage of refined, delicate French cuisine meets the hardy, no-nonsense of the North.

This bit of town is easy to walk through and miss but there is quite a lot of architecture to see and cool shops to explore.

Beautiful square with restaurants, shops and a cathedral right in Lower Quebec. The cobblestone square surrounded by old houses provides picturesque photo opportunities.

Place Royale is THE oldest 'white' construction in North America. Beautifully maintained, fascinating historical details, excellent shops, beautiful church.
