The heart of French Canada, "Kebec" is an Algonkian Indian word meaning "where the river flows north." The largest of Canada’s provinces, Québec’s largely French population makes it very different from other parts of the continent. This is reflected in various aspects of life here including architecture, music, food, and religion — about 90% of the population is Roman Catholic.  And Québec is often politically at odds with the rest of English-speaking Canada, sensing that its differences and desires are neither understood nor appreciated by the rest of the country.
Founded in 1608 by French explorer Samuel de Champlain, Québec City is the birthplace of French-colonial North America. Rich in history, culture, and beauty, the town is unique in several ways — most noticeably in its European appearance and old-world charm.  Québec City is the seat of the provincial government and has long been the Canadian center of French nationalist thought.  Although the majority of the population is French-speaking, many are bilingual, so English is spoken around most attractions and in the shops.

An important port, lying along the St. Lawrence River, Québec City is set high on a cliff overlooking the river. In early times its favorable location gave it value as a military fortress. Over the last two centuries these fortresses have been rebuilt, restored, and improved, creating Old Québec, the only walled city in America north of Mexico. The entire old section of town, essentially a living museum, has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The city’s beauty, charm, history, and architectural treasures should not be missed. The Citadel, a fort and famous landmark, sits atop the highest point overlooking the city. Essentially dividing the city itself into Upper Town and Lower Town, the Citadel is today the home base of Canada’s Royal 22s, a French regiment which developed quite a reputation through World Wars I and II, and the Korean War. Historical sites abound throughout the city, as well as interesting museums, parks, and churches. Visit the Grand Allee, which is sometimes referred to as the Champs-Elysees of Québec; stroll along the boardwalk behind the castle-style Chateau Frontenac; or walk along the top of the old walls for a panoramic view of the area. Joie de vivre is often used to describe the Québecers' love of lively conversation, laughter, and a good time — and justifiably so.
