Cultural, historical, architectural and artistic Lower Town Tour

This tour will be done in three different streets, during the day, so you can see the architecture of the houses. You will learn about the history of the Lower Town and also the modern life.

This neighborhood used to be one of the main industrial quarters in French Canada. So you will learn about the architecture of Quebecers' houses and how people lived in the Lower Town in the beginning of the 20th century.

The main street in the Lower Town is St. Joseph's Street. This street bustles with locals strolling around or going about their daily business. In fact, that is the young urban professionals' district.

Finally, I would say that in my city the nearby suburbs are attracting more and more people but St. Joseph Street is one of my best streets to stroll around.


Meet up at Gabrielle Roy's Library

Here are some of the places we will see :

* Few modern buildings
* A Quebec' traditional house and it's carriage door
* A French style architecture house
* A city garden (flowers and a waterfall, in summer)
* An American style factory
* A church
* If possible : the bus and train terminal

And so much more. . .
