The square contains three attractions – a temporary Louis XIV automated ‘snowglobe’, Notre Dame basilica and a huge mural which tells the history of Quebec. It is quaint and photogenic.

We stayed here over Labour Day weekend, and it was lovely. The hotel is one block from The gate / entry into the old city, so you walk right onto the main shopping Street, Rue St. Jean. I would come back in the winter, too,...More

Welcome back, Louis the XIV, it has been about 350 years since your grace has graced the square. You were, after all, the father of "New France" (more or less) and in 1686, your bust was set in place. Congratulations, this "royal province" of yours...More

As many other reviews have stated this is a beautiful square and worth the time to visit. But, be aware the museum that was once here closed two years ago.

No matter how many times we visit this area, it doesn't loose its charms. There are statues, restaurants, shops, cobble stone streets, murals.......around every corner there is a different sight to see.

This was the heart of the city's activity in the past. It is essentially a nice square surrounded by old Residences that have been turned into shops and restaurants. Paved with cobble stones. Nicely litted up at night.

There is no Casino near old Quebec. There is a casino north of downtown but you have to cross the river to get there. It's quite a distance away.
