Place Royale and Petit Champlain

Place-Royale of Quebec has undergone a complete reconstruction from the late 1960s to the 1980s. Interventions on the buildings of the Place Royale were to give them a heritage character evoking the architecture of the French Regime. This extensive renovation project, funded by the governments of Quebec and Canada‘s main objective was to make the Place Royale a major tourist attraction of the city of Quebec. In continuation, we find Le Petit Champlain, narrow pedestrian streets lined with shops and unique bistros. Its authentic decor, summer and winter long, making it one of the most popular sights of Quebec. Craftsmen and merchants of this district, are the proud guardians of this splendid heritage of Old-Quebec.
