Citadelle de Québec

Known as "the Gibraltar of the Americas" on account of its strategic location, the Citadel has the star-shaped form characteristic of Vauban fortifications. Breathtaking view of the city and the St. Lawrence River. Guided tours year-round. Admission fee includes access to the museum exhibits and, in the summer, to the Changing of the Guard and Beating of the Retreat ceremonies.
