Quebec Travel Guide

Attractions

Quebec City's main sight is the Old Town, the upper part of which is surrounded by a stone wall built by both French and British armies. It is now a tourist district with many small boutiques and hundreds of historical and photographic points of interest. Some of the buildings are original structures, while others are built in the same style and architecture as former buildings.

Haute-Ville
Chateau FrontenacQuebec City icon. Claimed to be the most photographed hotel in North America. Stay the night if you can (see Sleep) and pop in for a martini if you can't (see Drink). Guided tours available .
Dufferin TerraceBoardwalk situated alongside (east of) the Chateau Frontenac, and offers a grand view of the St. Lawrence River.
Muse national des Beaux-arts du QubecPrice: Permanent exhibits are free of charge while admission to the temporary exhibits is $15 for adultsLocated on the Battlefields park, the mission of this art museum is to promote and preserve Qubec art of all periods and to ensure a place for international art through temporary exhibitions.
