Quebec : Murals

Aside from empty chairs, graffiti, cemeteries and covered bridges - another favorite whenever we travel are murals. I love them since most of the time they have a story or are historical. Quebec did not disappoint as we found 3 beautiful murals.
In some unremembered street taken February 2015.

Fresque du Petit-Champlain

Further along, at the foot of Escalier Casse-Cou (Breakneck Steps) and along one of the oldest streets in North America, is Fresque du Petit-Champlain. It depicts milestones in the history of Cap-Blanc, Québec City's working-class waterfront neighborhood, from the beginnings of New France until the present day.

Fresque des Québécois

Visitors to Old Québec's Place-Royale can't miss the immense Fresque des Québécois on Côte de la Montagne. This mural recounts the story of Québec City, weaving in visual allusions to its unique architecture and fortifications, and its larger-than-life personalities.
