The Citadel of Quebec

When visiting Quebec City, learning about the history of this timeless city in the citadel is a must. The location is still used as an active military installation. Don't miss the summer change of the guard at 10:00 (June 24 through the 1st Monday of September). To visit, guided tours are mandatory, but these are very entertaining and interactive.

Do & See

Quebec City is so picturesque, you might at some point forget it is a real city. The tiny streets and tiny houses will take you back in time and away from what you would expect of a North American city. However, if the shops, cafes and restaurants are adorable, the streets and monuments will remind you of the historical importance of Quebec.
