Founded by the Jesuits in February 1665, the Trait-Carré de Charlesbourg represents the first attempt at colonization not centered on a great way of water. That new system astonishes by its originality. Its star configuration differs from the known models by conferring each piece a trapezoidal form.
Located at a significant crossroad, East-West direction between Quebec and the Montmorency falls and North-South between Quebec and Saguenay, the tourist office is very accessible. You can get any information regarding the activities of the Moulin, the Trait-Carré and Quebec city.
Furthermore, you can get the touristic guide of each area of Quebec, in French and English. The tourist office is opened mid-June to September, Wednesday at Sunday and the weekends the rest of the year.
