Colorful square surrounded by old buildings graced with seating, floral displays and a four story historical painted tableau--plenty of seating to enjoy the space and take a rest from walking--very historically significant buildings surround the square.

This is a quaint looking square facing Eglise Notre-Dame-des-Victories. Compared to other old churches, the exterior of Eglise Notre-Dame-des-Victories is pretty ordinary looking. So is the square. Other than passing through, there is no point making a special trip to see this square.

This lovely hotel is in the Old Town is very close to the cruise ship port. Our spacious room was very well appointed. The restaurant served delicious meals. We will definately be back for a longer stay.

This is a lovely area to simply wander around, or stop to have a drink or a bite to eat - there's plenty of choice. Nearby is a great mural and some great photo opportunities for you to pop your heads through.

This is a great stop in a visit to the lower city. The preservation of the building really gives you a sense of just how old this part of the city is. It's definitely a must see.

The square contains three attractions – a temporary Louis XIV automated ‘snowglobe’, Notre Dame basilica and a huge mural which tells the history of Quebec. It is quaint and photogenic.

We stayed here over Labour Day weekend, and it was lovely. The hotel is one block from The gate / entry into the old city, so you walk right onto the main shopping Street, Rue St. Jean. I would come back in the winter, too,...More

There is no Casino near old Quebec. There is a casino north of downtown but you have to cross the river to get there. It's quite a distance away.

Sorry, I don’t know. I saw a nice cassino in La Malbaie in front of the elegant hotel Manier Richelieu.
