Ville de Québec: since 1608
Quebec is the only fortified city of North America. Surrounded by strong walls, Quebec citizens could defend their French identity despite the English troops conquered the region and the town.
Streets are narrow and buildings are tall in the city center.
Metal roofs and structures reveal the strong influence from the Old Continent.
It is easy getting lost in the labyrinth of the lovely old town
and whenever a big square surprises you, a tall wall is there to remind you “Je me souviens“

Another great group of pictures. I have seen some of these pictures in person. You captured the essence of Quebec City quite well.
Thank you so much Jim! Quebec City was a jump back into the past of Canada. Have you been there into the Museum of Civilization? It was very nicely organized and guided tours a must. After Toronto, Quebec is the city we enjoyed most.
