The bohemian, colourful, and friendly neighbourhood of Faubourg Saint-Jean is Québec City at its finest.

Stroll down rue Saint-Jean and discover J.A. Moisan, the oldest grocery store in North America (1871), the Second Empire-style Saint-Jean-Baptiste Church, and St. Matthew's Church and cemetery.

Bustling with boutiquesrestaurants,cafés, and grocery stores, the neighbourhood is a great place to hang out.

From there, take the elevator down to Saint-Roch, another of the city's vibrant neighbourhoods.
