La Citadelle de Québec

1 Côte de la Citadelle
Quebec City, G1R 3R2, Canada
TEL: (418) 694-2853

Sitting like a five-pointed star among The Plains of Abraham and just above Terrasse Dufferin, La Citadelle de Québec is a still-active military base (home to the French-speaking Royal 22nd Regiment) and a complex of buildings and fortifications built circa 1820. Because the fortress is an active garrison, all tours are guided. Tours always include sweeping views of the St. Lawrence River, the Gaspé Peninsula, and Île D’Orleans along with the history of the fortifications and the 22nd Regiment’s own weapon and regalia museum. Don’t miss the changing of the guards at 10 a.m. (summer months only).

Insider Tip:

La Citadelle sits next to the medieval-looking Saint-Louis gate and within walking distance to Grande Allée cafés and shops.
