Citadelle of Quebec


The Royal 22e Regiment still occupies this star-shaped Quebec Citadelle, which was built from 1820 to 1850 to protect Quebec's eastern boundary. The structure, which is the largest fortified group of buildings in North America still occupied by troops, contains 25 buildings. Several historic rooms date back to the 17th century, as does the museum's collection of historic uniforms, firearms and documents. A highlight is the changing of the guard, conducted by soldiers in traditional military uniform. One-hour guided tours of the Quebec Citadelle are offered in French or English.
