About Québec City

From the summit of Cap Diamant to the shores of the majestic St. Lawrence River, Quebec City will charm you with its lifestyle, culture, history and joie de vivre.

Cradle of French civilization in North America, Quebec, whose name means “where the river narrows” in Iroquoian, was founded four centuries ago and is today a lively seaport, an important research and service center, a major cultural city and, of course, the capital of Quebec. It is also one of the safest cities in America.

Since 1985, the historic district of Old Quebec has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Nearby cafes, restaurants, parks and attractions are within your reach. We invite you to learn more about Québec at www.quebecregion.com
