This small cobblestone square in the Old Port is where it all started—the site where Samuel de Champlain founded Québec City in 1608. Presiding over it is Notre-Dame-des-Victoires Church, one of Canada's oldest stone churches and almost as old as the square itself, having been built in 1688. Today Place-Royale is mostly lined with boutiques and restaurants housed in carefully restored buildings. Visitors wanting to learn about the city's early history should drop by the Place-Royale Museum (Centre d'interprétation de Place-Royale) on the west side of the square.
