On it's own this mural is fascinating to look at, but if you can go with a guide it is even better. It seems as if every section of the mural is a story of its own. It is a well thought out mural history...More

More of a hidden gem and a special part of the walk around Old Quebec.. you have to work your way down to the lower city, either walk or ride the Funicular. Excavations of Old Quebec are around the mural. Neat mural.

There is a lot of history in this painting! It is worth to listen the comments made by tourist guides and see the 400 years of history as well as the 4 seasons included in this painting.
