Inscription. French:
C’est sur cet emplacement stratégique, fréquenté par les Amérindiens depuis environ 3000 ans, que Samuel de Champlain fonde le comptoir de Québec, le 3 juillet 1608. Il y fait ériger une habitation en bois qui est reconstruite en pierre à partir de 1724. De 1633 à 1682, ce bâtiment sert de magasin avant d’être détruit par un incendie. L’église de Notre-Dame-des-Victoires est élevée sur une partie des vestiges de l’habitation, vers 1688.

Ce lieu symbolique rappelle le premier établissement français permanent en Amérique. Il témoigne de l’oeuvre de Champlain, de la fondation de la ville de Québec et de la naissance de la Nouvelle-France.

Ce site a été classé le 27 mars 2008 par la ministre de la Culture, des Communications et de la Condition féminine.
