Following is the spectacular interior of the Notre-Dame-de-Québec Basilica-Cathedral. Then continuing to the Lower Town, finding ourselves in the middle of Place Royale where Samuel de Champlain founded Québec in 1608. Discover the restored houses of merchant families from the New France era. Let’s wander into cobblestone streets and historic houses and take a peek at the Royal Battery facing the river for the defense of the city.
