Québec City

Visit Québec City

Introduction

Quebec City became a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to the battle in 1759 that saw Britain gain rule of Canada. General James Wolfe led the British to victory over the French on the Plains of Abraham just outside the city's walls. Now the Fortifications de Québec and the Parc des Champs-de-Bataille are just two of the fascinating historic sites that should feature on your Québec itinerary.

Meander through the cobbled streets to find a city that remains distinctly French in culture and architecture. Your eyes will be drawn to Château Frontenac set on a hill in the centre of the city overlooking the St Lawrence River. From here stroll along Terrace Dufferin to look over at the rural island of Ile d'Orleans and end up in La Citadelle. Watch the Changing of the Guard at this working military barrack and delve deeper into Québec's history.

The city is accessible by foot with most attractions clustered in Lower Town. Pay a visit to Basilique Notre-Dame-de-Québec, take a break along the way in the number of shops and restaurants or enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride around Place D'Armes. Or find the bust of Louis XIV at Place Royale on your walk to Vieux Port. From here you can enjoy a boat trip to visit the waterfalls at Parc de la Chute Montmorency.
