Québec by Lantern Light | The National Battlefields Commission and Parks Canada present a new and unusual interactive guided tour
As part of Canada’s 150th anniversary celebrations, The National Battlefields Commission and Parks Canada have pooled their expertise to diversify the summer services presently offered, creating an interactive guided tour inviting the population and tourists to explore the history interconnecting their respective sites.
Québec by Lantern Light is based on fact, and on characters who really existed. Discover unusual places such as the Glacière Bastion, the Pierre-Dugua-De-Mons Terrace and the Esplanade Powder Magazine. Themes explored include night life in Québec in 1847, naval construction, the timber trade, military life, public health and hygiene. Meet some extraordinary characters along the way. Follow your guide, Samuel Lemon (or his wife, Sarah Bowen) during your adventure, but beware of those who might try to betray your trust!
Mysterious locations, a walking tour through time, impressive scenery, five colourful characters and a fascinating story.
