Le Petit Champlain
The cradle of French America, the picturesque streets of le Petit Champlain filled with boutiques, art galleries will charmed you completely.
Since Québec’s foundation in 1608, this area has evolved to a small portside village with fur trading posts and elegant homes. Over the years, it<s fortunes waxed and waned. Today, as a result of an expansive urban restoration project, Quartier Petit-Champlain comprises narrow streets lined with one-of-a-kind boutiques and bistros. Visitors come in droves throughout the year to see the impressive historical architecture and cobblestone streets, making the Petit-Champlain one of the most popular attractions in the city.
All year-round, visitors are enchanted by the romantic European atmosphere of this quaint neighbourhood, site of the Québec's first port, and can see here some of the colony's first houses.
