"Four Towers of Quebec City"

Located in the Battlefields Park, there are four Martello Towers to provide protection for Quebec City from the western end. Built between 1808 and 1812, the hard-walled, defense towers were established under the leadership of James Craig. The thick walls provided the much-needed fortification from the artillery fire. Although they were rendered useless in the 1860s, Martello Tower 1 remains open to visitors during summer.
