We get off the bus at the Porte St-Jean, to take a walk a long the busy rue St-Jean towards City Hall, and Holy Trinity Anglican church up towards the UNESCO monument and the Chateau Frontenac, but this time, instead of going up onto Terrace Dufferin, we take a left, down several flights of stairs to the historic Montmorency Park then onto cote de la Montange and down a road that is a basically a 1 in 3 incline.
We’re heading for Place Royale and the statue of Lovis (King Louis XIV), and one of Québec City’s most famous churches, Notre-Dame des Victoires, then Royale Battery park. Along the way we pass the Québec City mural and a part of the city’s historic ruins.
Of course, we have a destination in mind, after soaking up all this beautiful architecture and history we want to sit awhile in the square at Cafe Smith, sup a cappuccino, eat a scone, and watch the world go by.
So how was your day?
