Facility:La Citadelle
Description:Welcome to La Citadelle of Quebec. This national historical site, also known as the Gibraltar of America, is the best place to begin a trip into the military past and present of Quebec City.

A one-hour guided tour will provide you information about the American attacks, the construction of the fortress and its buildings. The visit of the Royal 22e Regiment Museum located in an old French powder magazine (1750) and a former military prison (1842) is included in the tour.

La Citadelle is an active military garrison and cannot be visited individually. Guided tours of 60 minutes are therefore offered in French or English.

From June 24 till the 1st Monday in September come and see the Changing of the Guard ceremony that is held every morning at 10am . You will see Batisse, our regimental goat as well as hear the Royal 22e Regiment musical band.

Furthermore, starting on July 6 till the 1st Sunday in September, attend the ceremony of the Retreat, Friday nights at 7pm at the Citadelle, Saturday and Sunday nights at 7pm at the Esplanade Park.

Guided tours of the Gouvernor General's residence are also available.
