Fresque du Petit-Champlain is a real revelation. It is beautiful art work and it is free. It depicts the lives of common people at work in the old days of Quebec. Absolutely wonderful. We sat down and admired it for over an hour.

Fresque du Petit Champlain is a trompe l’oeil depicting the history of Cap-Blanc, Quebec City’s working class neighborhood. It’s not as large or well-known as the Fresque Des Quebecois, but is equally realistic and beautiful. It’s another must-see mural in Quebec City.

Wall decoration in the heart of the tourist area will cause you to stop and take a look during your mad search for souvenirs and treats. It is lovely and fun at the same time.

Rue Notre Dame has a mural of famous Quebecois. At the western end of Petit Champlain is a mural for the unfamous, those doing the necessary grind of work to make the economy move. It is smaller than its more famous counterpart but more colourful, reflecting day to day life. Walking westbound you cannot miss it. walking eastbound, look over your shoulder for this gem.

Look at it while you walk through the Old Town. Well maintained and easy (and free) to view. Doesn't take much time.

A wonderful mural which was very detailed. Saw this when wandering around the old town painted on the side of one of the buildings.

Take 5 minutes to admire this artwork and check all the little details. It shows local people doing their job in the older days. Located in the lower old town. Bus 11 or funicular elevator. The artwork looks 3D. FREE!

During our visit to Quebec City aboard Caribbean Princess cruise ship, we enjoyed strolling along the charming Rue du Petit Champlain from the base of Frontenac Escalier (staircase). Passing the cute shops along the street and the funicular station, we approached the end of Rue du Petit Champlain when we came across this mural. The mural depicted the history of the working class neighborhood near the waterfront. The people in the mural looked so real, and the mural seemed as if it was telling the history of the neighborhood via a series of visual art works. It is an interesting landmark to visit at the end of strolling along Rue du Petit Champlain.

The fresco is located on the entire side of the building at the end of Rue du Petit Champlain (where it joins the Boulevard Champlain). It is a fascinating work of art depicting life in Quebec in the 1700’s. It truly appears to be three-dimensional.

It is a beautiful mural and well worth seeing.
