Fodor's Review

For a bird's-eye view from 31 stories up, check out the Observatoire de la Capitale. Located atop the Édifice Marie-Guyart, the city's tallest building, the observation gallery offers a spectacular panorama of Québec City. The site features an overview of the city's history with 3-D imagery, audiovisual displays in both French and English, and a time-travel theme with a 1960s twist.
