In my last post, I talked about the upper part of Old Quebec. The lower part is called Quartier Petit Champlain and it’s a really nice little area with independent shops and restaurants.
To get to the lower part, you can walk the steep path down or you can take the Funiculaire, a small elevator that runs on a slope (photo 1). The elevation is about 54 metres high.
The restaurants in Quartier Petit Champlain have really attractive exteriors. You’ll find many French restaurants there. The one on the top right photo is dedicated to serving rabbits. I’ve never tried it. I’m not sure I ever will.
The buildings and the store fronts are very colourful. I love how these are really old stone buildings, but a coat of bright paint on windows and doors can make it look so modern.
