For now, the place is under reform. The good point is that entrance is temporally free. There are lots of information about the strategy used in wars as well as to defend the city. A nice place to go.

Great views from the top of the park! It really helps give you some appreciation of Old Quebec City. There is history to be learned and appreciated here as well.
