Old Quebec city
Old Quebec city
Description: Lower Town, home to the first settlers of New France, encompasses the old port district and a host of other treasures. Leading the way to Upper Town are steep, winding roads and stairways with telling names, like Cote de la Montagne Mountain Road and Escalier Casse-Cou Breakneck Stairway. And crowning it all is one of the most photographed buildings in the world, the famous Chateau Frontenac, perched atop towering Cape Diamond. In Upper Town, the contours of the fortified city are easy to see and explore. In fact, all it takes is a short stroll to understand why Old Quebec was named a UNESCO World Heritage Treasure.
