Alcatraz Island

I took this photo of this famous island from a ferry boat ride that was going by the sight.  The island is known as “The Rock” and was home to a lighthouse, a military fortification, a military prison and a federal prison.  Native Americans call it an “evil island” and believe it to be cursed.  A number of movies have been made on the Island.  Tours are available to it.  You can see a huge barge on the right of the photo and in front of the bridge.

The Citadelle is a National Historic Site of Canada and also forms part of the Fortifications of Québec National Historic Site of Canada.  The fortress is located within the “Historic District of Old Québec”, which was designated a World Heritage Site in 1985.”
