A tiny touristy area below the Old City (Chateau Frontenac). You can also walk over to the ferry to Levis (and back) for a view of the city

This is one of the pretties streets. Narrow , with shops and restaurants on both sides. The food is always great. And the shops hold many wonderful treasures by local artisans. Nice area to spend a day.

It's a wonderful place to walk around; located at the base of the Château Frontenac. Its full of little shops and great restaurants. So if you have the time, take a walk around and have a light meal.

This is a very quaint area full of shops and restaurants. You can easily lose track of time just wandering about here. This is a lovely area to just walk around and wander about. Makes you forget you are still in North America.

The government was going to raze the whole place and build a car park but some people bought and eventually sold it to a cooperative of artisans who sell their crafts there. This is a far better outcome for... More

What a lovely little network of streets, even if you don't go in any of the stores. This is a charming area to walk around even in November, all the stores and cafes were open and the area was being prepped for Christmas which made it even more lovely than it is naturally. The street leads in one direction to... More
