Grande Allée

Point of interest

The street that never sleeps! There is always a crowd here at any time of the day or night, be it families out for a walk or party-goers bar hopping. A number of restaurants, bars and buildings with impressive architecture are located on this street. The name Grande Allée goes back to the French Administration; in those days this was the road linking Québec and the Amerindian mission in Sillery.

Also known as the Québec Champs Élysées, at one time Grande Allée was the most fashionable street in town. It is lined with buildings of diverse architectural styles, typical of Victorian times. Several Second Empire residences were built here (677-695, Grande Allée Est), influenced by the Parliament Building's architecture.
