Point of interest

Place de la FAO commemorates the 50th anniversary of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, which was founded in Québec City in 1945. The sculpture of the figurehead holding foodstuffs from around the world, entitled ¬@Ital~La Vivrière¬@$p~, reflects Québec City's historical role as a major trade port. Nearby, you can admire the magnificent architecture of the Canadian Bank of Commerce, with its impressive columns, cornices, cupolas and pediments. This building dates back to 1914.
