Lower Town

Upper Town

Parliament Hill

Hotel du Parlement, Quebec City.
The spaciously laid out district immediately south-west of the old Upper Town is the seat of Québec's provincial government. The Parliament, completed in 1877 but later extended, could have been modeled on any number of Parisian public buildings. The Salle de l'Assemblée Nationale (National Assembly) and Salle du Conseil Législatif (Legislative Council) are open to the public (tickets should again be obtained in plenty of time). Both are fine old chambers, sumptuously furnished.

Grand Théâtre

As well as plays the Grand Théâtre de Québec (along the Boulevard St-Cyrille Est) also stages concerts by the Conservatoire and the Québec Symphony Orchestra, the latter being the oldest orchestra of its kind in Canada.
Address: 269, boulevard René-Lévesque Est, Québec, QU G1R2B3, Canada

Still on Parliament Hill but a little further down, the Palais des Congrès is a large hotel/shopping/entertainment complex in Quebec. It includes a 3800 sq. m (41,000 sq. ft) congress center capable of accommodating up to 5000 people.
