Quebec:  Lower Town, Funicular, and City Hall at Night!

Old Quebec Funicular

Dear Commons Community,

Yesterday Elaine and I spent time in the Lower Town of Quebec City. To get there we took the Old Quebec Funicular, a railway that  links the Haute-Ville (Upper Town) at Dufferin Terrace to the Basse-Ville (Lower Town) at Rue du Petit-Champlain.  It is double tracked and has a height of almost 200 feet.  It also gives a rider a beautiful view of the St. Lawrence River.

The Lower Town is a gem of narrow streets with restaurants and shops.

In the evening, after dinner we sat in the Quebec City Hall Square with its beautiful fountains.

A nice day all around!
