You can't miss this one! It's right in front of the national assembly, and just a short walk from the gates of Old Quebec. It's very large, and very beautiful. It's a great meeting place, and the scenery that surrounds it is wonderful!

Beautiful flowers surround the fountain and the parliament makes a great background. Just outside the old city.

Very nice area. We were there during the Carnaval, so a nice landmark, and nice history to go along with it.

This fountain is quite attractive in this lovely park. We cannot miss it once in the park, which is quite close to the Parliament Building. I found out that it has 43 water jets.

The Fountain has a nice design and located in front of the Parliament. Some benches around it, provide people to seat and enjoy the water and flowers.

Beautiful fountain in front of the Parliament Building in Quebec. We had used the local bus system and there is a drop off @ the fountain, just tell the friendly bus drivers where you want to get off.

These monuments have a big play on the history there and at night is lighted with really beautiful purple lights. Do get to see it in both day and night time.

It would have been better with running water, but maybe not. without the water you get an unobstructed view of the statuary that adorns two levels of the fountain. the small flower gardens circling (literally) the fountains add a splash of color to make this a beautiful site with or without the fountains running.

This is a spot that would be more significant if you do a little research before you go. This fountain was a gift to Quebec and has a lot to see - just not always easy if there is a lot of traffic.
