Quebec City

Whether you drive through the grand old seigneuries of the Cote-du-Sud, or southern shore, of the St. Lawrence, retrace the steps of travelers along the old "Chemin du Roy" (The King's Way) on the north shore of the river, or follow the Chaudiere River downstream to the world-famous Pont du Quebec, the roads leading to Quebec City are like illuminated manuscripts come to life, recording important traces of Quebec's history. The area around Quebec City boasts fine architecture, richly decorated churches, idyllic farms, plenty of natural attractions and a unique blend of cultures.

The jewel in the crown of New France, romantic Quebec City is surrounded by ancient stone walls, the only remaining fortified city in North America. The impressive 4.6-km-long stronghold encircling the old city was declared an historical monument in 1957. No tour of Quebec City is complete without a stop at Rue Saint-Paul and the Old Port, and don't miss the impressive Chateau Frontenac, a world-famous hotel that celebrated its centennial in 1993. that General Wolfe posted his proclamation of the fall of New France in 1759.
