June 5, 2013 - Part 3

This is the Place-Royale (Royal Square), which was the center of New France's first permanent colony in the 1620s and served as its marketplace.  The bricks of the street are laid in a circular pattern.

Eglise Notre-Dame-des-Victories (Church of Our Lady of Victories) was built in 1688 and named for French naval victories over the British in 1690 and 1711.  It is the oldest stone church building in Quebec.
