A view of the city looking north from the Observatoire de la Capitale, with the Delta Hotel in the foreground (right) and the St. Charles River in the centre, winding its way towards the St. Lawrence. 

Here’s a whole new way to see the city from the Observatoire de la Capitale situated on the 31st floor of Édifice Marie-Guyart, also known as “Complexe G,” 221 metres above sea level. The building, completed in 1972, is 132 metres high (to the rooftop, not including the antenna) and is the tallest in Quebec City.
