This place is absolutely beautiful to walk around and take in the views. It is so peaceful there. Totally a Quebec City must. more »
This is one of the most historic places in Canada and every Canadian should see it at least once. For me, it made the whole event real and gave me a new appreciation for my heritage. It is very easy to imagine how the battle unfolded as much of the area is intact. I have developed a profound respect for the French, their culture and history as a result of visiting this place and I feel even more like a true Canadian.
It's a great place, and huge, for sports in the winter, or any season. Cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, skating, and jogging, there's someone doing these almost at anytime, day or night, no matter how cold. The views are spectacular and the proximity of cafes is a bonus.
