Built between 1865 and 1872, the Lévis Forts were designed to protect Quebec City against an American invasion. The last in a series of three detached forts, Fort No. 1 attests to the remarkable technological innovations of the time. Stroll through dark, vaulted tunnels, discovering underground firing ranges, a powder magazine and casemates. Learn about the history of the fort and military strategies. And on a clear day, enjoy the superb panorama.
