How to get to the Citadelle

Road map to the Citadelle

The Governor General's residence is located within the Citadelle of Québec, which sits atop Cap-Diamant. Access is via the Côte de la Citadelle, near the St. Louis gate.

Because the Citadelle is an active military base, it is only accessible to visitors when accompanied by a guide.

The schedule of activities may be changed without notice to accommodate official events.


Parking is available on site for a two-hour period. Buses are not allowed in. Bus drivers are asked to let their passengers off at the entrance of the Citadelle.

For mobility-impaired visitors, the residence can be accessed by car or mini-bus, by reservation only.

Bus drivers are asked to drop off passengers at the entrance to the Citadelle. Please allow five minutes to walk from the drop-off point to the residence.
