Rue Donnacona

Vieux-Québec, Canada

Rue Donnacona is a small street tucked away in the heart of Vieux Québec that runs along part of the property where a community of Ursuline nuns had settled in the seventeenth century. (The Ursulines at this location tended to the French and British wounded during the Battle of Québec in 1759 when the city fell from French control to the British.) You might need a map to find this street, however; it's rather small and it isn't one of the more heavily-trafficked streets in the city. Photo © copyright by WG Phelan.
