Quebec City, situated in the Canadian province of Quebec, serves as its capital. With a population of 549,459 as of July 2021, it is the eleventh-largest city in Canada and the second-largest in the province, surpassed only by Montreal. The metropolitan area of Quebec City has a population of 839,311, making it the seventh-largest metropolitan area in the country. Known for its rich history, Quebec City was founded by Samuel de Champlain in 1608 and is one of the oldest European settlements in North America.

The city boasts several notable landmarks, including the iconic Château Frontenac hotel, which dominates the city’s skyline, and the Citadelle of Quebec, a well-preserved fortress forming the centerpiece of the ramparts encircling the old city. These ramparts, surrounding Old Quebec, are the sole remaining fortified city walls in the Americas north of Mexico. Recognizing the historical significance of this area, UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site in 1985 under the name “Historic District of Old Québec.”

Within or near Vieux-Québec (Old Quebec), visitors can explore the National Assembly of Quebec, the provincial legislature, as well as the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (National Museum of Fine Arts of Quebec) and the Musée de la civilisation (Museum of Civilization). These cultural institutions contribute to the city’s vibrant arts and heritage scene.
