Description

Enjoy a 2 hours walking tour in Old Quebec Upper Town with a experienced guide.

This thematic tour focuses on women's history, women's condition and rights : one of the most original way to discover the old city.

You'll discover the role the women played through history in Quebec City & Lévis. Why women were in the background ? Why still today women don't prevail in history ?

We start nearby the Parlement, we go inside the fortified city, discover some monuments and buildings related to women. We walk nearby the Ursulines, Holy Trinity, the Price building, the City Hall, the Augustines, Laval University's first campus and much more. At the Dufferin boardwalk, we'll talk about the women from Lévis (in front of Quebec City, across the St. Lawrence river). We finally end the tour in a peaceful park nearby the Grand Séminaire.

You'll learn about business women, nunes, artists, politicians, spies and first settlers like King's daughters (Filles du Roy). Most of them are not famous.

It is not an activist tour. The goal is to discover Old Quebec from an original and interesting perspective : through the contribution of women.
