Québec City a place to discover

The cradle of French North America, shaped by over 400 years of history, Québec City is a charming blend of old and new, offering a wealth of natural, cultural and historic attractions along with the pleasures of city life.

Take a historical tour through the only fortified city in North America: Visit Old Québec and Place-Royale where Samuel de Champlain built his first house in 1608, the Plains of Abraham where the decisive battle between the English and French took place in 1759, as well as the famous Château Frontenac overlooking the St. Lawrence River.

Québec City is also home to the Musée de la civilisation, the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec as well as the Parliament Building, where the province's National Assembly sits. Rich in history and culture, the city boasts lively streets, fine restaurants, renowned international hotels, art galleries and street entertainers. There are also a large number of resorts in the Québec City area, which offers plenty of outdoor activities anyone can take part in!
