On our recent trip to Quebec City, we walked along the Fortifications of Quebec, which is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The walls are historically significant as they are the only remaining fortified city walls in North America north of Mexico. These walls are nearly 4.6km in length and surround much of the old city. We were able to climb the stairs to the top of the wall, and walk along it towards the The Citadelle and the Plains of Abraham park, enjoying many wonderful views of Quebec City on our way.
This photograph shows a view from up on top of the wall at Porte St. Jean, peering through one of the small spaces to the historic city down below. Old Quebec is so incredibly charming, especially in the Lower Town – you almost feel as though you’re walking around France, not Canada!
