There are very impressive and easy to find in the park. The walk to them is easy and very pleasant on a beautiful day. The park itself is worth a visit. You should take the Avenue George V in the park for an easier shorter walk from the Citadelle. Don't forget to sit down on one of the many benches to enjoy the park and the magnificent views!

After a rather disappointing visit to the Battlefields Museum which was all rather confusing the visit to the Martello Tower on the same ticket was a revelation. The concept of the towers and how it is now presented using ipads was very impressive. Some of the virtual reality was a bit weak but the commentary putting the tower into context was first rate and thank you for having as proper English Accent making it even more authentic!

OK, so why is a stone tower that used to house a cannon cool? Because, they strap an iPad on you and when you hold it up to numbered markers throughout the tower, you see things that aren't really there! You hear from soldiers' stories, or see what they ate, or how the cannon works. Lots of hands on...kids love it (so did adults)! Totally surprised at how well done the tower tour was. My advice? Do it when you are on the Plains of Abraham! A fun diversion

Beautiful in the location of the Plaines of Abraham. This landmark will take you back in time and show you how the military strategies were used.

Nice walk with beautiful view from the tower. Lots of little benches to sit and have a picnic with beautiful view of the river
