Saint-Louis Forts and Chateaux National Historic Site of Canada Reopens

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - April 14, 2009) - Since the 2008 season was such a success, the Saint-Louis Forts and Chateaux historic site will again welcome visitors free of charge from May 9 to October 12, 2009, every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Located under the Dufferin Terrace, at the foot of the Chateau Frontenac, the site will put on guided tours, costumed interpretive activities, conferences on special topics and audiovisual presentations to make visitors aware of and appreciate this exceptional site.

The public can also see the interesting artefacts discovered during the archaeological digs from 2005 and 2007 at an exhibit in the Louis S. St. Laurent building, located at 3 Passage du Chien d'Or, a few steps away from the Saint-Louis Forts and Chateaux.

In 2008, Parks Canada interpretative guides welcomed 304,000 visitors. They were able to view the historic and archaeological richness of this unique site, the seat of executive power of colonial governors from 1620 to 1834.
