Facility:Levis Forts National Historic Site of Canada
Description:Perched atop the heights of Point Levy, Fort No. 1 was the last in a chain of three forts built under the supervision of British military engineers between 1865 and 1872. These forts completed the defence network protecting Quebec against any future land invasion by the Americans. Since 1855, a railway had linked Levis to Maine. Fort No. 1 is higher than the Citadel in Quebec, in fact it is the highest point in the region and provides a panoramic view of Quebec, Ile d'Orleans and Cote-de-Beaupre. This star-shaped fort was opened to the public in 1982. Today it houses a multimedia exhibition depicting its history.
