QUEBEC - CANADA

 


Quebec - Canada

Canada is a beautiful country, either for its incredible nature or for some of its cities, with a colonial air that make them authentic jewels to discover. In this post, I propose to travel alone to Quebec, which I consider to be the most beautiful city in the country. Do you want to meet her?

About Quebec

Quebec is the most important city in French-speaking Canada. It gives its name to the province in which it is located and is one of the most historic in the country. In fact, it dates back to the early 17th century when it was founded by Samuel de Champlain.

 It was an important colony of France, a country that impregnated this entire area of ​​Canada with its architectural style. The stone houses with mezzanines reminiscent of the streets of Paris are perfect for walking around and taking thousands of photos and, in addition to turning Quebec into a beautiful city, they have made it a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

 The name "Quebec" means "where the river narrows," referring to the flow of the Saint Lawrence River between the city and neighboring Lévis, on the other side. The San Lorenzo River is closely linked to the province, and it runs through a large part of it before flowing into the Atlantic Ocean, forming the largest estuary in the world.

 

Observatoire de la Capitale

A good way to start the day and find yourself in the city is by going up to the Observatoire de la Capitale. This 360º viewpoint over Quebec offers you privileged views with explanations (in Spanish, among other languages) of all the buildings that can be seen.

 

Its walls are also full of information to better know Quebec city and province. For example, did you know that the average temperature in winter is -12 degrees? Admission is C $ 14.75 (tax included).

  1. ·         National Assembly
