Tours Martello (Martello Towers) Review
Of the 16 Martello towers in Canada, four were built in Québec City because the British government feared an invasion after the American Revolution. In summer, visitors can tour Martello Tower No. 1, and watch a presentation on the history of the four structures. A haunted maze is held for youngsters on Halloween at Martello Tower No. 2, at avenues Taché and Laurier, and a mystery dinner show is available by reservation. Martello Tower No. 3, which guarded the westward entry to the city, was demolished in 1904. Martello Tower No. 4, on rue Lavigueur overlooking the St. Charles River, isn't open to the public.
