At the top of Rue du Corps-de-Garde, a set of stairs leads up to the left, towards the Parc du Cavalier-du-Moulin which can be seen at the top of the ramparts. The Maison Péan and the tree with the cannonball in its roots are on the corner of Rue Saint-Louis, just out of sight on the lower right.

Behind the large stone building known as the Maison Péan, located at 59 Rue Saint-Louis, a field has lain abandoned for nearly 25 years. Its overgrown grass and bushes are an incomprehensible eyesore in the middle of Old Quebec.
