Getting Here and Around in Lower Town


Getting Here and Around

Because Lower Town is the oldest part of the city, many prefer to see it first to get a sense of how the city developed chronologically. If coming from Upper Town, head down L'Escalier Casse-Cou, a stairway steep enough to earn that name, which means "Breakneck Stairs." Have your camera or phone ready, as the top of the staircase is where to snap that quintessential Petit-Champlain photo.
