(Continued from Previous Post) The Citadel If you keep walking along the Dufferin Terrace away from the Chateau, you will eventually get to the Citadel. Believe it or not, the Citadel is the home of the Governor General of Canada as well as a full working barracks. The Citadel is part of the city walls and I was keen to head inside. Sadly, DS nixed this idea too. But he was happy to climb along the walls, which turned out to be a much better activity for us. The views were fantastic from this vantage point. Looking towards the St Lawrence and in the direction of the Plains of Abraham. We kept following the city walls .and saw a couple of, what is now, romantic turrets. Although, as these items remind us, they probably werent so romantic in the 1600s and the 1700's when the wars with the English and French were going on. And in case youre wondering how high those walls are, this may give you an idea. Arts and Crafts Here are some of the street art we saw in Quebec City (Sorry for this one...but it represents the street art for sale in Quebec City. I might try and get a picture of the painting I came home with and replace it at some stage.) ....and some of the statues. DS favourite pieces of art! Looking back at the pictures we have from this trip, they definitely do not do this place justice. Not only that they do not show how beautiful this city is at night! We really enjoyed our time in the Old Town of Quebec City. It was charming, captivating, breathtaking and amazingly European for a North American city. Both DH and I know that it is definitely someplace wed like to get back to in the future. And rest assured, Ill be there with the dSLR in hand for the scenery .and the food porn.
