Quebec in detail

Quebec City - the 'cradle of New France' and a UNESCO World Heritage site - is the most charming city in North America.

This is thanks to a centuries-old city wall that encircles a thicket of spires and a web of cobblestone streets, charming bistros and horse-drawn calèches and a grand copper-roofed hotel that overlooks an historic river.

The walled Upper Town sits atop strategic Cap Diamant, overlooking the spot where the St Lawrence River narrows. Those narrows - known as the kebec to the original Algonquin inhabitants - gave the city its name.

At the foot of Cap Diamant lies Lower Town, where Samuel de Champlain founded the city in 1608. Today, visitors strolling around the restored Place Royale can easily imagine they're back in the 1600s.
