Quebec City Pictures

Explore Quebec City's charm and heritage through these photos and pictures of historic buildings, monuments, lively street scenes and the famous winter festival.

Capital of the province of Quebec, Quebec City is prominently situated on the banks of the mighty St. Lawrence River. A cliff separates the old city into the lower town and upper town.

In the lower town, the Place-Royal is considered the birthplace of French Canada, where the city was founded 400 years ago. Here, one can view many fine buildings including the Eglise Notre-Dame-des-Victoires, the oldest church in Quebec. The Quartier Petit-Champlain is one of Quebec City's most visited quarters, with winding cobbled streets, artists' shops, boutiques and cafés.

The old quarter of the upper town is surrounded by stonewalls that are a UNESCO world heritage site. Though most of the fortifications are much older, the British built the star-shaped Citadel in the 1800's. The upper town is crowned by the Chateau Frontenac atop Cap-Diamant. ...More information below photos...

...Continue gallery information: The Terrasse Dufferin, a boardwalk in front of the Chateau Frontenac, provides stunning views of the St. Lawrence River.

West of the city walls are the Parliament Buildings, and the Plains of Abraham, the former battlefield where the British defeated the French in 1759, now a city park.

Quebec City comes to life during the summer festival and famous Quebec Winter Carnival. The winter carnival is led by the cheery mascot Bonhomme.

Through this series of photographs, one can experience Quebec City's romantic, European-style architecture and vibrant French culture. 2008 marked the 400th anniversary of the founding of Quebec City which is celebrated through various events held throughout the year. These celebrations have one common theme of "Meetings and Encounters".
