A visit of Quebec city begins with the Citadelle! Inside the walls of the impressive Old Quebec fortress is a heritage chronicling more than 300 years of history. This National Historic Site of Canada overlooks the city, perchedon the heights ofCape Diamond. Built during the 19th century, its strategic location was meant to defend Quebec City and therefore offers a spectacular view of it and region. From the sky, its walls are star-shapped and reveal a unique architecture.
During summer, the soldiers of the Royal 22e Régiment, the only french-speaking regiment of the Canadian army, are reviving the changing of the guard tradition. That is a unique event in Quebec! All year long, through guided visits and exhibitions of the Musée Royal 22e Régiment, discover the Citadelle, where military heritage comes alive!
