Various rooftops of different buildings and the clock tower of the old Post Office building can be seen in the skyline of Old Quebec City, part of modern-day Quebec, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Canada. The buildings are various residences and businesses and some have colourful roofs or siding, but all of them are part of this historic area of Quebec, which has an interesting and unique history.
Old Quebec means the part of Quebec that was first built inside the walls of the city. Many early towns started off as walled towns, with everything being built within these walls to making it easier to protect should the town come under attack - the walls enabled sections of the city to be sealed off and protect it from the inside against invaders.
The old Post Office building in Old Quebec is still a dominant structure in the city and the dome on the top of the tower is easily visible from most places in the city. The clock still works in the tower and a Canadian flag flies proudly above the city.
The old quarter of Quebec is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, meaning it is looked after by the International World Heritage Programme as a site that is important to the heritage of humanity.
