Perched on a clifftop 60m above the St Lawrence River, this 425m-long boardwalk is a marvelous setting for a stroll, with spectacular, sweeping views. In summer it’s peppered with street performers; in winter it hosts a dramatic toboggan run. Near the statue of Samuel de Champlain, stairways descend to the recent excavations of Champlain’s second fort , which stood here from 1620 to 1635. Nearby, you can take the funicular to the Old Lower Town.
