Things to see in Upper Town

Chateau Frontenac is not just something that you must see, but something you will see. Built for the Canadian Pacific Railway at the end of the 1800s, this spectacular building is now a hotel, offering fabulous views and dominating the Québec skyline. Just in front of the Chateau lies the Place d’Armes, the neighborhood’s main square. This area is particularly exciting in the summer months when it is filled with street performers showing off their talents. Maintaining an artistic spirit, the Place d’Armes links neatly on to the Rue de Trésors and, as its name suggests, this street is an impressive trove of treasures where artists hang their work from the walls for all to admire and even to purchase. For more artistic delights, visit the imposing Notre-Dame basilica to admire its impressive altar and the artistry of this Catholic cathedral’s stained-glass windows.
