Place Royale is a gorgeous public place that makes for pretty pictures, but it’s also one of our most significant historic attractions. Considered the birthplace of French America, it is precisely here that Samuel de Champlain founded the city in 1608. The Place is bordered by historic homes, the oldest stone church in North America, and a history museum.
