Was so thrilled when we stumbled upon this square, more so for its historical significance. Square is lined with a church and some shops. Definitely would be more of a sight to see in the summer.

Historic old square in town - lots of history in the buildings around the area. La Maison Smith is a nice little cafe for hot chocolate, coffee or a gelato in summer. There is also a nest little shop selling local handcrafts from local artisans.

Worth the walk! Got to stand where Samuel De Champlain's house used go be. Hard to describe! The Church is simply beautiful. We stopped at Smith for a sandwich. Was delicious

Hi, How close is it? Very close, it's only a 2 min walk from Place Royale. If you go up to the Chateau, then it's an other story!
