We approached the Citadel from Avenue Saint Denis and climbed the hilly grassy bank to La Terrasse Saint Denis. At this spot, we were almost level with the top of the walls of the Citadel. A small portion of that defensive wall was under construction...More

We enjoyed our walk around The Citadel and Precincts and the information plaques made history interesting. The troops stationed here were quite visible and many were either leaving their quarters, or returning, with their hockey sticks. Good to see them physically fit. The views from...More

The facility, the exhibits, the guides, the scenery, the history ... magnificent!!! And, it remains an active military facility. It was fun to see some active duty troops returning to their quarters with hockey equipment in their backpacks.

We decided to see the Governor's Residence rather than the army side. It was a very interesting tour with guide Maud. The tour was fully accessible for my wheelchair and the fact that it was free of charge was an added bonus!

I ended my day with a trip to the Citadel. As it is an active military base, you are only allowed to have a guided tour. The museum is part of the admission fee and it is very worth it! The views are spectacular with...More

Because it's still an active military base, you have to be on a guided tour to see it. Our guide, Sabrina, was very friendly and knowledgeable. The tour took us about 60 minutes and we got to see quite a bit. Along the way we...More
