Érico chocolaterie pâtisserie

Érico chocolaterie pâtisserie is both a creative chocolate boutique and a chocolate museum.

It’s a chocolate-lover’s paradise.

L'Îlots des Palais

A new immersive exhibition is taking shape in the 18th century vaults of one of Québec’s most archeologically significant historic sites. Through technology, visitors are transported back in time to the once-bustling area that was home to Jean Talon’s brewery, the Intendant’s Palace, the King’s prisons and stores, and the Boswell brewery—with hi-tech ground mapping, projections, and 3D reconstructions that illuminate the history of the site from the 14th century to the present day.

You’re sure to have a grand old time shopping in the shopping centers, picturesque neighborhoods, and commercial thoroughfares in and around Québec City.
