Sometimes called "the Gibraltar of America," this imposing fort is located on Cap-aux-Diamants, overlooking the St Lawrence River. Manned to this day by traditionally-dressed troops who perform the changing of the guard every summer day at 10am,Quebec Citadel also offers a museum of Quebec' s military history and the story of the Royal 22nd Regiment. Experienced tour guides lead visitors on a one-hour tour through 250 years of Quebec's tumultuous past.
A must-go for family and history-lover. It has never actually been used in battle before., hence everything is in great condition. The citadel is still a working faculty for the canadian forces.
The tour was great. There is a replica display for all the medals awarded in the past wars and a gun collection. And a chance to crawl through the edges of the citadel ( was intend to be built to defend the citadel) A great way to learn about quebec and canadian history.
I saw many fortress in europe but la citadelle of Quebec is one of my favorite.
So well preserve that it is still used by the canadian army. True ambiance of those kind of fortress with a lot of artefact here and there.
so big that you can't miss it you will walk along the side of the fortress any time
An important part of the history of Quebec. We went for the changing of the guard ceremony and the tour of the citadel. The tour guides are friendly and very knowledgable. Beautiful scenic views of the Hotel Frontenac, the city and the St. Lawrence River.
