Québec City’s Maison de la littérature is a beauty! The library is a delightful mix of contemporary design and neo-gothic architecture. The tall narrow windows of the original building bathe the vast space in warm light. The interior design is all white walls, blond wood floors, and white metal.
As well as a public library, the building houses quiet writing and reading rooms, creative studios, and a hub for all kinds of events and activities. The space actively works to promote and encourage Québécois culture, traditions, and language.
A spectacular winding white metal staircase links the two floors – you’ll be tempted to photograph from above but remember – don’t Instagram and walk!
We’ll be visiting the Maison de la littérature as part of Classical Pursuit’s trip to Québec City in September 2021. Our fall trip is sold out. Email Donna to reserve your spot for our spring 2022 trip.
