Observatoire de la Capitale

Observatoire de la Capitale is one of the capital’s most popular attractions.

The Tower

Observatoire de la Capitale is located at the 31st floor of the Marie-Guyart Building.

The Marie-Guyart Building towers over the heart of Parliament Hill. It took five years to build and was completed in 1972. Originally known as “Complex G,” it was renamed “the Marie-Guyart Building” in 1989 in honor of the founder of the Ursulines School, Marie de l’Incarnation.

The Observatory offers visitors a chance to admire 400 years of history at a glance.

A political, economic, military, and religious hub, Québec City is the provincial capital and the largest city in eastern Québec. Québec City is renowned for its economic and cultural vibrancy, and has been a UNESCO World Heritage City since 1985.
