Overview

La Citadel de Québec, also known as the Citadelle of Quebec, is a fortress that stands as a prominent attraction with much historical relevance. Built between 1820 and 1850 by the French engineer Vauban, this star-shaped structure has Norman and French influences. The fort houses the Royal 22e Regiment, the French regiment of native forces that is a popular attraction today. It is also the official abode to the Governor General of Canada. There are buildings inside the citadel that have an array of collections and memorabilia from uniforms, photographs to drawings, weapons, documents and so on. You can also find here military prisons, magazines, museums and more exhibiting the history of this national site. Catch the grim beef-eaters do their majestic parade in the Guard ceremony held every morning. A must visit!
