Old Quebec

Old Québec immerses you in an unforgettable journey through time. Stroll through the historical districts, all within walking distance from our Hotel. This eminently walkable historic neighbourhood offers up an incredible mix of wow-inducing scenes and Old World charm. You will discover St-Jean street with its shops, restaurants and theaters, passing by the majestic Château Frontenac and then go down to the Place Royal and the Quartier Petit Champlain. Designated a World Heritage treasure by UNESCO, Old Québec is the only walled city north of Mexico. As the cradle of French civilization in North America, it’s a living history lesson with a remarkable mix of architecture, heritage, art, and culture.

Battlefields Park

Canada’s first national historic park, Battlefields Park, which includes the Plains of Abraham, was created in 1908 to mark the 300th anniversary of the founding of Québec. The 98 hectare park is a vast playground that draws sports. The Plains of Abraham are to Québec City as Central Park is to New York—an oasis of greenery in the heart of the city. The scene of many historic milestones over the centuries, the Plains today are the mainstage venue for headline cultural events. This is where the annual Quebec City Summer Festival takes place every year!

The exhibition, designed and organized by MondoMostre, in collaboration with the Vergel Foundation and a contribution from Throckmorton Fine Art, comprises not only works by the artistic duo but also paintings by other modern Mexican artists and numerous photographs that situate the latter in the period during which they lived.

MANASIE AKPALIAPIK AT MNBAQ

Considered one of the most gifted artists of his generation, Manasie Akpaliapik, originally from Baffin Island in Nunavut, more specifically the Village of Ikpiarjuk (Arctic Bay), was born in 1955 within a small community of seal hunters.
Starting in the early 1980s, he embraced sculpture as a profession. And it’s in Southern Canada, more precisely in Montréal and Toronto, that the work of this extraordinary observer of oral tradition, moral values, wildlife, the supernatural world and the Arctic environment will develop.
