L’Hôtel de Ville
Inaugurated in 1896, Québec’s City Hall was the work of prolific architect Georges-Émile Tanguay, and like the National Assembly, is built in ornate Second Empire style. With the Notre Dame Basilica by its side and Chateau Frontenac as a backdrop, City Hall is part of the most fantastically towered and turreted vignette of Québec City architecture.

Price Building
This 18-storey commercial building, constructed between 1930 and 1931, was Québec’s first skyscraper. The elegantly tapering, “wedding cake” shaped tower is also one of Canada’s best examples of Art Deco. Its grey limestone is carved with geometric palm motifs, but the building retains the characteristically Québecois steepled copper roof. An apartment on the 16th and 17th floors is the official residence of Québec’s Premier, the leader of the Québec Parliament.
