Close your eyes and imagine winding cobblestone streets, a collection of world-class museums, sidewalk cafes serving crepes and croissants and French spoken everywhere. If your imagination takes you to Paris, you would be wrong. Welcome to Québec City, Canada. Showcasing an Old Town behind fortification walls and buildings spanning four centuries (17th-20th) all from a dramatic cliff-top location overlooking the St. Lawrence River every corner unveils a piece of the past. Its these historical credentials that explain its unique stature as North Americas first urban ensemble and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
