Quebec City was first settled by Jacques-Cartier in 1535. That’s 484 years worth of history. Everywhere you look in Old Quebec there is a piece of history. Boasting French Urban Colonial Architecture and prominent military installations, Old Quebec is easy to get around on foot.
We started our tour at the Martello Towers, then crossed the street to the Plains of Abraham. At this site in 1759, the British took control of Quebec City and allowed them to take over the rest of Canada the following year.
From there we walked to the Citadelle which is an active and historic military installation. We then took theGovernor’s Walkway boardwalk that hugs Quebec’s fortification walls over to the Chateau Frontenac.
The Chateau Frontenac was one of the first grand railway hotels. It has hosted many prominent public figures and has themed rooms to honor such figures as Pierre Elliott & Justin Trudeau, Churchill, and Roosevelt.
We ended the tour meandering within Old Quebec’s fortification walls and discovered some festivals, buskers and many, many restaurants.
This walking tour is a low cost, family friendly way to see this beautiful city and many historical sites. There are many signs in both languages that the discuss the important buildings and sites, which also makes it very interactive.
We are looking forwards to visiting it again in the near future.
