Beautiful site to visit, especially at night with someone who can show you around the town. I highly recommend walking around and take your time, there's so much history to take in.

This is the real deal... a piece of history that is perfectly preserved.
Walk the many winding cobblestone streets and read the plaques on the walls, to relive history. Be prepared to walk a lot.

Climbing the walls and exploring the nooks and crannies gave us a lot of entertainment. Though be warned, some parts of the fortification do smell of urine.

As we were in Quebec in November, there wasn't much open but that didn't stop us from climbing the walls and enjoying the views. You can walk quite far on and around the walls. It is interesting to stop and read the signs along the way.

Very interesting, especially if you take the time to read all the "billboards" and check out all the nooks and crannies.
