Placa de Armas, Ville de Quebec, 2005[open in full screen]  

 
 

This was supposed to be a social square in the prime location. It is cut of from the rest of the historic city core, surrounded by heavy traffic, turned to the bus terminal and very noisy.

  Not very pleasant first impression of the city by most of the tourists who are dropped here. Main tourist information is located on the square so one more reason to be forced to this square!   Photo bellow is from our 2013 visit. Placa made little better impression or us at that time, but not by much.
