Tourny Fountain

Point of interest

Across from the Parliament Building stands this magnificent fountain, a gift from La Maison Simons (a local family-owned retail store) to the City of Québec for its 400th anniversary. Passers-by often stop to admire the 43 fountain heads and figures adorning this impressive monument, which measures 7 m (21 ft.) high and 4 m (13 ft.) in diameter. In the evening, the fountain is illuminated.
