Constructed in 1690 to fend off British attacks, this fortification at the Place Royale still displays ten of its original 11 cannons. The Royal Battery saw most of its action during the siege of Quebec in 1759. In the summertime, staff explain the history of the cannons and the battery, including how the cannons were loaded and fired, and a description of the many perils that awaited the soldier in charge of these huge pieces of artillery. Children, in particular, are often fascinated by this well-preserved piece of Quebec's military history. Admission is free.
