Two visitors take in the panoramic view from the new lookout on Côte de Sillery.

One of the more scenic hillside traverses in Quebec City now has a spectacular lookout.

City officials recently inaugurated the Belvédère de la Côte de Sillery, a project first announced two years ago. Perched on the curve of the steep road and sidewalk, the glass-fenced lookout offers what is described in a city press release as a view from “a hitherto untapped natural promontory.”
