AAA Editor Notes

Battlefields Park (Parc des Champs-de-Bataille) is between rue Bougainville and the St-Louis Gate, with entrances on Grande Allée. The park encompasses the Plains of Abraham, where the armies of Gen. James Wolfe and the Marquis de Montcalm fought in 1759. The information and reception center is in the Plains of Abraham Museum. The restored Martello Tower 1, vestige of the 19th century, features a smart tablet-based virtual reality experience as well as an exhibit about the Québec City Martello Towers, their architecture, military engineering, and the living conditions of the military billeted in the towers. The exhibition “Battles” is about the siege of Québec and the 1759 and 1760 battles of the Plains of Abraham. The “Identities” exhibition has a collection of Park artifacts. Abraham's Bus Tour uses humor to relate the site's best kept secrets. In summer the park offers the Joan of Arc Garden, and a number of open-air concerts take place at the Edwin-Bélanger Bandstand. Guided tours are available.
