Quebec: the middle of our journey, before taking a plane to the weast coast.
Firsts steps at the train station, backpackers way towards our hostel. Firsts impressions watching all those old buildings with green copper roofs, great gardens and beautiful churchs. After a little rest finally in our room, we arrived at the Old Quebec. One of the oldest cities in the Americas north of Mexico.
We cross the “Porte Saint Jean”, the ramparts, and want to get lost on those paved streets.
Next day we enjoyed the must-see montmorency falls. The falls, at 84 meters high, are the highest in the province of Quebec and 30 meters higher than Niagara Falls.
Coming back from the falls there is the benefit of having nearly the train station to go to the Marché du Vieux Port, a treat for all the senses.
And then return to old quebec, discovering the Citadelle, and the Chateau Frontenac, on the top of Cap-Diamant,watching to the Saint Laurent river.
You can enjoy the panorama walking on the Terrasse Dufferin and keep walking on those streets you can admire the Basilic of Notre Dame.
Then you can joint the “Basse ville” with the “Escalier Casse-Cou” or the funicular, and walk around the art galleries, bistrots, shops of the Petit Champlain’s Quartier, visit the Museum of Civilisation or the Place-Royal.
