835, avenue Wilfrid-Laurier
Canada’s first national historic park. National Battlefields Park is over a hundred years old. Its main sites are the Plains of Abraham (98 hectares) and Des Braves Park (5 hectares).The 1759 Battle of the Plains of Abraham was the defining confrontation between the French and British Empires in North America. Months later, in 1760, the two powers clashed again in the Battle of Sainte-Foy, where Des Braves Park now stands.Today the task of preserving and presenting this magnificent park—one of the world’s most iconic urban green spaces—falls to the National Battlefields Commission. This green heart of the city is a community focal point and welcomes some 4 million visitors, both tourists and locals, each year.

Je suis allée récemment visiter Québec et j'ai été agréablement surprise de découvrir Les plaines d' Abraham ( parc des champs de Bataille ) ?? Mon dieu quel endroit superbe !!! Autant par son accueuil si chaleureux qui a su me toucher le coeur et l'ame de ma fierté Québecoise ,que par la qualitéde la nourriture et les gites si extras par la simplicité .
