Plains of Abraham

4 anmeldelser
Part of Battlefields Park, this grassy expanse was the setting for a major military clash in 1759, which led to the British takeover of New France—a battle that is well-documented in the Plains of Abraham Museum. The park is an outdoor playground for Quebec City residents who come here to stroll, cycle, jog, sled, and cross-country ski.
 
The Basics
The Plains of Abraham is one of the most important historical sites in Quebec City and also doubles as a popular recreational space. Delve into the region’s history at the Plains of Abraham Museum, which hosts an exhibition detailing the battles fought on this site. The park is dotted with military remnants, including cannons and a British-built Martello tower.
 
The plains are a common stop on hop-on hop-off bus tours of Quebec City. They can also be seen from above during helicopter tours, which fly over Old Quebec (Vieux Quebec), the St. Lawrence River, and, depending on the selected route, other sights in the region, such as Montmorency Falls.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Plains of Abraham are a must-visit for history buffs.
  • Guided tours of the site begin at the Plains of Abraham Museum, which has a gift shop and exhibitions detailing the history of the site.
  • The museum is wheelchair accessible and select paved trails around the park are also suitable for wheelchair users.
 
How to Get There
The Plains of Abraham is situated within Battlefields Park in Quebec City. The most scenic approach is on foot from the Chateau Frontenac hotel: Follow Dufferin Terrace (Terrasse Dufferin) and the Promenade des Gouverneurs riverside boardwalk east to reach the plains.
 
When to Get There
The best time to come is between July and September, when Battlefields Park hosts many special activities, including guided bus tours, special guided tours by lantern, and an exhibition in the Martello tower. In early October, the park is full of colorful fall foliage, while in winter, it is a magnet for snowshoers and cross-country skiers.
