The Frontenac Hotel overlooking the St. Lawrence River
Today we wandered the streets of Quebec City, first with a 2 hour guided walking tour then on our own. According to our 'app' we logged 10.5 miles and felt like we deserved the cocktail at this magnificent hotel at the end of our day. It honestly feels like Europe in Quebec City, complete with bus and cruise ships loaded with tourists flooding the streets. The sun was shining most of the day but by 4pm it started to rain. Whether it was the rain or the people returning to their cruise ships/sightseeing coaches, after 4 we had the place mostly to ourselves. Nice.
View of the city looking down from the Citadelle, the fortified garrison that defended the city over 3 centuries.
Still keeping the traditions.
One of the many squares with outside tables.
The indoor farmers market the runs daily throughout the year. Lots of vendors with all kinds of goodies.
OK, they are tour guides. We think they shouldn't let cars, busses and trucks on these streets but it is a real working town so everyone shares the road.
A truly grand Catholic Church with all the gold leaf you could want.
Another shot of the Frontenac Hotel. What a beauty!
