There are bleachers set up to watch street performers near here, and there always seems to be lots of action going on. Near lots of other points of interest to keep you busy also.

The fountain is at a nice central spot to relax and take in old quebec city. It is close to restaurants, the terrace dufferin and the hotels and would be the location of the street vendors during the summer months.
