Beautiful square with restaurants, shops and a cathedral right in Lower Quebec. The cobblestone square surrounded by old houses provides picturesque photo opportunities.

Nice picturesque place. Old Québécois buildings in the lower town. You can walk down the hill by stairs or take the funicular. Plenty of little store s, restaurants and people watching.

This small square is a great place to relax with a beer or a coffee to absorb the history of Quebec City and watch the world pass by.

Hi, How close is it? Very close, it's only a 2 min walk from Place Royale. If you go up to the Chateau, then it's an other story!
