  • Like most parliaments and assemblies these sites are proud seats of government but most are the same just different gardens, still a nice building and grounds to visit.

  • A must visit place in Quebec. Free guided tours in both French and English, just call ahead to confirm timings. The guides are very knowledgeable and eager, and it is quite the place to set your history lessons straight. They also have a boutique and restaurant inside, and a free cloakroom too.
  • Beautiful building and grounds area. Lots of history and worth seeing.
