Another beautiful, sunny day in Quebec City. We walked through Porte Saint-Louis, leaving the walled city of Vieux Quebec and headed to the Plains of Abraham, where the battle between British and French troops occurred Sept 13, 1759. The 15 minute battle decided fate of Canada.

This is the Fresque des Quebecois in Place Royal which traces 400 years of history and has historical figures in the mural. Jacques Cartier is in the window 2nd from top on left and Samuel de Champlain, who founded Quebec in 1608, is centre figure on road in front of the gate to the city.
Historic Notre Dame des Victoires Church in Place Royale, the oldest stone church in North America (1688).
Mike standing beside statue of Louis Hebert, a relative on his mother's side of the family. He was the first farmer in New France and was also an herbalist.

Inside of Notre Dame de Quebec Basilica Cathedral, Samuel de Champlain ordered the constructions of the Chapel in 1633.
