Old Quebec City
Discover something special in every corner as you explore the 400-year history reflected in the birthplace of French North America. Old Quebec City offers an impressive trip among abundant architectural treasures unlike anything else outside of Europe – and placed on UNESCO’s list of world heritage sites for just this reason.
Musée de la civilisation promotes and operates both the Musée de l'Amérique francophone and Centre National de Conservation et d'études des collections.
The Plains of Abraham is a huge historical park with trails for walks and green spaces, all with a magnificent view of the River Saint Laurent. The land is the site of the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, which took place on 13 September 1759, but hundreds of acres of the fields are now used for grazing, housing and minor industrial structures.
La Citadelle de Québec
The largest British fortress built in North America, La Citadelle de Québec sits atop Cape Diamond, the area’s highest natural point. More than 300 years of history can be explored at this fortress—an active garrison of the Royal 22e Régiment and a National Historic Site with impressive architecture and spectacular views of the city and St. Lawrence River.
Fall Foliage Cruise Ships
The most beautiful cruise ships make climbing in the Old Port of Quebec a pleasure for all as visitors flock to the area during the fall months for leaf watching season, filled with brilliant foliage and a seeming parade of these boats along the St. Lawrence River.
