Nothing special today, just big open fields, however this place is very historic. Learn how the English and French fought it out here with QC as the reward.

Beautiful park like area along the St. Lawrence river. Guide was wonderful explaining the history. Walked along the ridge. Visited the park where officers were barricaded. Not a lot to do unless you just want to walk the trail.

The hotel is located in the heart of the upper town. Convenient and easy walking distance from all the sites above and easy to access via "funiculaire" to the lower town.
