Long Description:
Plaines d'Abraham (Parc des Champs-de-Bataille)

Premier parc historique national au Canada. Créé il y a plus de cent ans, le parc des Champs-de-Bataille regroupe, les plaines d'Abraham (98 hectares) et le parc des Braves (5 hectares). Lieu d'affrontement des Empires français et britannique, les plaines d'Abraham furent le théâtre de la célèbre bataille de 1759. Quelques mois plus tard, en 1760, le combat se poursuivit entre les deux puissances lors de la bataille de Sainte-Foy, à l'emplacement notamment de l'actuel parc des Braves. Ce parc urbain accueille annuellement 4 millions de visiteurs!
