ABOUT QUÉBEC CITY

Québec City, which gives its name to the province, has been founded near the former site of the Huron-Wendat village of Stadacona, not far from the river banks of Cape Diamond. Blessed with a beautiful natural landscape and with rich history, the walled part of the city, referred to as Old Québec, boasts a unique heritage in North America. Indeed, its historical district has been on UNESCO’s World Heritage List since 1985. Wendake, immediately on the outskirts of the city, is home to the only recognized Huron-Wendat community in Canada.
 
Bordered by the majestic St. Lawrence river, Old Québec is an enchanting setting bustling with economic and tourism activities. The Huron-Wendat of Wendake also display the same balance between nature, culture and development.
 
The provincial capital offers a wealth of discoveries and activities for all tastes. Whether you wish to visit one of our museums or historical sites, discover the city from an open-top bus, or participate in an outdoor activity, you will be only minutes away from most of the tourist attractions the city has on offer.
 
With its affordable accommodations and the legendary hospitality of its citizens, it’s not surprising that Quebec City welcomes over four million tourists each year!
