This is part of the old town of Quebec, it is all little antique stores, restaurants, art galleries and little boutiques.  There are a few of the buildings that have large murals painted on them like the picture on the right. This one is titled: The Fresco Petit Champlain - It depicts milestones in the history of Cap-Blanc, Québec City's working-class waterfront neighborhood, from the beginnings of New France until the present day.

This mural recounts the story of Québec City, its unique architecture and fortifications, and its larger-than-life personalities. If you look closely at the building's windows: you would see some 15 historic figures and nearly a dozen of Québec's leading writers and artists.
