Top 10 Awe-Inspiring Attractions in Quebec
If you wish to take a stroll through history, try visiting the city of Quebec! That said, you might be surprised to know that this French Canadian identity also happens to be among the oldest, yet magnificent settlements of North America. While the picturesque Old Town here in Quebec, is a Unesco World Heritage site, with its narrow cobblestone streets, soaring church spires, sidewalk cafes, classic bistros, and manicured squares, you can also witness the glamor of the neighborhoods of St-Jean Baptiste, Colline Parlementaire, Montcalm and St-Roch through the historic town gates of Porte St-Jean and Porte St-Louis. Also noteworthy here are the expansive Plains of Abraham, where the British armies defeated the French in 1759. Tourists flock the city throughout the year and especially enjoy the frolics and festivities of Quebec's Winter Carnival. If you too are planning on visiting this splendid Canadian city, here are ten places that are a must-visit: Old Quebec, The Citadelle of Quebec, Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupre Shrine, Parliament Hill, The Cathedral-Basilica of Notre-Dame de Quebec, Place Royale, Plains of Abraham, St. Lawrence River & Vieux-Port de QuÃ©bec, and Musee de la Civilisation.
