Place de Armas, Quebec City, QC, Canada, 2013[open in full screen]  

 
 

For all the visitors arriving in Ville de Quebac by buss this is an entrance point to the city. All the busses and people are making this space confusing and congested.

  Main tourist office, located on the square, is helpful but, in my opinion, it is adding to the over all sense of being overcrowded.

Visitors are trying to use well maintained park even with all the noice around them. We visited this space back in 2005 and now impression is little better than before.

  Just few steps up and away and you are on the most magnificent view point and promenade of the city, behind hotel Ch√Ęteau Frontenac blocking the view from the Place de Armas.

Forget first impression and start from the second one!
