Quebec City – One of the Most Beautiful Cities in North America
Originally known in Algonquin as "kebec," or "where the river narrows," Quebec City overlooks the St. Lawrence River as it winds through the heart of the province on its way to the Atlantic. As the only fortified city north of Mexico, Quebec City's rich history has been impeccably preserved. Narrow cobbled streets, old stone homes, ramparts and cannons contribute to the old-world charm that permeates every square inch of the city, to charm every sense of its visitors.
The Plains of Abraham
The Plains of Abraham, officially known as Battlefields Park, was the site of one of the most important battles in Canadian history. Apart from its historical past, the park is to Québec what Central Park and Hyde Park are to New York and London: a city park of outstanding value, the lungs of the city. One hundred and three hectares of meadow and grassy knolls, decked with flowers or covered with snow, are there for residents and visitors to enjoy. Today, it's where festivals are held, and people come to ski or skate in the winter and picnic in the summer. This park in the city is also the location of the Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec and is as our backyard.
