The Quartier Petit Champlain, located under the Chateau Frontenac, is one of those magical places that makes you feel like you're in a different world. Blocked off by the St-Lawrence River, a large cliff, and a large hill, its insular quality adds to that otherworldly feeling. It can be accessed by the Escalier Casse-Cou or the Quebec Funicular. Quaint, historical, and touristy, all at the same time, it's what all tourist spots should aspire to be!
