Located on the Saint Lawrence River, the capital of Quebec Province, Quebec City, was founded in 1608. This French-speaking city has a definite European feel, with its stone buildings and narrow streets; notable sights include the Citadelle of Quebec and the Château Frontenac Hotel. Shoppers will be keen to visit the Petit Champlain district, which also features numerous bistros. We explore some of the top sites to add to your Quebec City Bucket List!
The historic district of Old Quebec is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Visitors flock to see the Château Frontenac Hotel, which is said to be the most photographed hotel in the world. As a fortified city, Old Quebec still retains its ramparts, and it is the only North American city to do so. Built on a cliff, the Upper Town is a center for both administration and religion. The Lower Town is also a historic district. Old Quebec features an outdoor art gallery, Rue du Trésor, and you will encounter entertainers and horse-drawn carriages on the streets. You can view the Saint Lawrence River while taking a leisurely walk on the Dufferin Terrace.
