Quebec City, located about 400km from the Gulf of St.Lawrence, is one of the world's most picturesque cities and is the capital of the province of Quebec. It is the cradle of French culture in Canada with a 95% French-speaking population. Founded in 1608 by Samuel de Champlain, today Greater Quebec City has approximately 500,000 inhabitants.
Quebec City is the only North American city, north of Mexico, to have maintained its fortifications. With its old city walls, the characteristic green copper roofs and fortified Citadel, UNESCO declared the provincial capital a World Heritage site in 1985. The city is split into two levels, Upper Town and Lower Town, which are connected by stone stairways and a municipal lift.
The heart of the 'Upper Town' is Old Town (Vieux Quebec) here its cobblestone streets filled with bars, cafes, restaurants and shaded squares emphasize the European flare. This section of the city demonstrates fine 18th-and 19th-century architecture, notably the Place D'Armes and the first-class hotel Chateau Frontenac. In front of the Château Frontenac is a wide promenade with 310 wooden steps leading up to the Citadel, which affords incredible views across the St Lawrence River.
