This is just a great area. About 10min. from our hotel. Loved the buildings and the square. This place is dripping personality. Walk, walk and walk. So much to see.

The area was small but definitely worth a visit as it was very quaint and less crowded then the main shopping street in Quebec. I bought one of the best almond croissants in the pastry shop there.

This place used to be a market, when the europeans were trading with natives. A place of tremendous history and very well conserved. The Notre-Dame-des-Victoires overlooks the plaza and also deserves a visit.

This is a pleasant area to walk around and to eat or sit for a drink in the outdoor cafes. It is a nice place to soak up history, with the oldest buildings and an historic church.

There is rich history in this square with over 300 year-old buildings. Be sure to visit day and night. During the day you have an opportunity to see the intricate brick work and at night, the place comes alive with energy and vibrant colours.

It was very busy, people just wandering about. The church as interesting to visit. Shoppes present, basically a gathering place

The museum in Place Royale has a guide who gives outdoor tours of the area and is full of informative information, all for the entry price at the museum.
