We arrived here via the almost 400 steps just by the wall. It gave us a very nice view when we got to the top. It was a nice big field and the day we were there it was snowing so it was a sea of white and looked so peaceful. We took a nice stroll around.

I had travelled independently from Montreal on a great Via Rail Canada train - far better than a dreaded bus, or driving - so I had limited time to 'see' Quebec City. The battlefields were very green from what I saw with the cannons particularly interesting. It was difficult coming from an island nation that was only formally discovered in... More

Love this space! We went back everyday we were there. There is a giant staircase on the south side which takes you down to the water, 397 steps I believe! The space is just stunning, the walls, trees, everything. A must see if you enjoy green spaces.

I would have loved this place(the museum) if I was a kid.I was a bit bored by it all and thought many of their static displays could have been installed more effectively as everybody is trying to see the same things all at once as soon as the short film finished everyone has to go in the same direction down...

Our City tour included so much which would have been impossible to see in a day had we not had access to a motor coach. It can be quite windy along the river so take a jacket.

We walk through the plains everyday on a 3 day trip to quebec city. On the east end is the citadel (large fort you can visit by tour), in the middle you have the joan of arc gardens and 2 of the 4 (now 3) Mortello towers and on the west side the musee des beaux arts.

A historic area the scene of many battles with the British. It is like a park with monuments. Nice to see if you have the time, but I would not make time for it.
