This is backtracking to earlier today after we left the tourist office. First we walked around the Plains of Abraham, where the Battle of Quebec was fought in 1759 during the Seven Years War between the British and the French. This area overlooks the St. Lawrence River and is next to the Citadelle, part of the fortifications of Quebec. There is a wooden walk along the Plains called the Governors Promenade that has views over the river. This is quite a long promenade with many steps down to river level and the lower part of town.
