Great and interesting plaza. There are shops, restaurants, statue, church and just all around fascinating architecture. You could spend a couple of hours here checking it all out. While we were there is was all decked out for the fall and Halloween.

The Place Royale is located in the lower Quebec Town in the Quartier Petit Champlain. It is less than a two minutes walk from the Funiculaire. The Eglise Notre-Dame-des-Victoires is located there as well. Strolling around during the day or at night is nice!

I had seen this place in pictures only. It was nice to be there and experience it first hand. The only downside was the throng of people around.

A short walk from the harbor. So very charming. This area is protected by the Heritage Commission. The houses are now used as shops, restaurants, and art galleries.

This is in the lower part of the city walk-able from the cruise ship dock. This area is about 12 small blocks all in the 17th century style. Many shops and cafes and a quick walk up the hill to the Chateau.

WE were there in the run-up to Halloween so there was a lot of children activity - a lot of which translates into Noise. But, a great place to come to at any time of the year. WE will be back.

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!
