A beautiful and empty place. I couldn't believe why this place was so empty. But I got my answer there. That's why it's so magical!

The Martello towers were defensive fortifications used by the British Empire right after the Napoleonic Wars. The towers became obsolete after the invention of rifled artillery in the mid 19th century. Quebec had four Martellos, and this particular Martello was Martello #1.

The Martello Tower has plenty of historic significance and is a great reminder of Quebec City's French and English past. This one in particular has since been turned into a museum.
