On explore Québec !
Historic District of Old Québec
Québec was founded by the French explorer Champlain in the early 17th century. It is the only North American city to have preserved its ramparts, together with the numerous bastions, gates and defensive works which still surround Old Québec. The Upper Town, built on the cliff, has remained the religious and administrative centre, with its churches, convents and other monuments like the Dauphine Redoubt, the Citadel and Château Frontenac. Together with the Lower Town and its ancient districts, it forms an urban ensemble which is one of the best examples of a fortified colonial city.
Place Royale is the place where Samuel de Champlain founded Québec in 1608.
Notre-Dame-de-Québec was built in 1647, leading in 1664 to the establishment of the first Roman Catholic parish north of the Spanish colonies.
Maison des Jésuites de Silvery
The first permanent Jesuit establishment in the area, founded in 1637 in an effort to convert and settle the nomadic Algonquins and their allies.
