Place-Royale, Quebec City, QC, Canada, 2013

this description about place royale is from the lost files when I wisited this square in 2001. of course it is still the same as when it was created as the birthplace of french civilization on this side of the atlantic ocean. construction began in 1608 and in the glory days of louis XIV place du marché becomes place royale. this famous town plaza is the heart of historic lower town and has been an important social center since the city's founding. place royale is bustling in summertime, only a few steps away from boutiques, restaurants, maison fornel with its exhibitions and the place-royale interpretation centre.
excellent square built to human proportions one of the best completely preserved space anywhere.
