If you're not that much into military history, skip the museum tour and just visit the promenade path outside the walls of the complex without paying the fee. You can walk along the boardwalk trail from here to the Chateau Frontenac (or vice versa) and enjoy spectacular views of the water below.

    For the colder months of the year we'd give this place a 4-Star ("Liked it") instead of the 5-Star ("Loved it") because you'd miss the changing of the guard - and that's what we really love about the place.

    Great historical place, showing the history behind Quebec city and its struggle with Americans coming from the south. Also considering its almost in the heart of the city, it is very easy to get to and from.
