Lieu historique national des Forts-de-Lévis

In a few words

Built between 1865 and 1872 by the British on the highlands of Lévis, Fort No. 1 is an integral part of the defensive system of Québec City. Shaped like a pentagon, it is today the last link in a chain of three separate forts used to thwart a potential American invasion. Magnificently restored by Parks Canada, the Fort now offers visitors the opportunity to uncover its closely guarded secrets with the help of enthusiastic guides. You'll be impressed by the caponiers and underground tunnels. Learn about the powder magazine, the trench surrounding the fortress and the casemates housing an exhibit on the Fort's history. Also enjoy a leisurely stroll along a wooded trail or a family picnic at the top of the Fort with its stunning view of the entire Québec region and the St. Lawrence River.
