Quebec Holidays Overview


Samuel de Champlain might have founded Quebec as a fortified city in the year 1608, but it has managed to transform itself into one of the most beautiful cities in North America over the years. Quebec is a city that is best known for its unique culture, breathtaking architecture, old world sights and a rich history. It is also one of those few cities that is always best explored or discovered on foot.

The picturesque Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is a live museum of cobblestone streets, 17th century houses and splendid churches. The Old Town along with its elegant bistros and manicured squares is considered to be the main draw of Quebec. St. Jean Street is not just an entry point into Old Town, it lies at the very heart of the city and home to the main social and cultural life of Quebec. The St. Jean Gate, Notre Dame de Quebec and Place Royale are also located close by.

Yes, it might be the only fortified city in North America to the north of Mexico, but it certainly knows how to welcome its travellers and visitors. It’s not just the history and culture that demands for your attention. Little things such as its public squares, delicate cuisines, fiery French fares, cobblestone streets and unique ways of life also vie for the traveller’s attention.

Moreover, Quebec is not just about its stunning beauty, old world charms and breathtaking architectures. Tourists can choose from a myriad of entertainment activities as well. From acrobats and musicians that occupy public squares and entertain visitors throughout the summer months to the grand Winter Carnival and the only ice hotel of North America, there is no shortage of things to do in Quebec.

Many tourists might boast of exploring the entire length and breadth of the city in a single day, but the true sights only reveal themselves over time. Sticking in town for one weekend is a must for all travellers.

2. Place Royale
Interpretation Centre of Place-Royale, 27 rue Notre-Dame
www.mcq.org
What is it? The site of the historical Place-Royale complex was used in ancient times by Amerindians for trading, until the leader of the first Quebec French settlement, Samuel de Champlain, constructed a formal fortified fur trading post in 1608. The trading post flourished and grew into a thriving town, constructed largely of wood, until in 1682 it was destroyed by fire. Reconstruction was in fire-resistant stone, the buildings that still stand today. Known as the market square, the site once again became a hub of activity, until the end of the 19th century when its importance declined. By 1950 the Place Royale was a neglected, decaying area. The Government then initiated a restoration programme that has turned this historic site, known as the 'birthplace of French America', into one of the city's main attractions. It features a clutch of interesting museums, living history demonstrations and tours of historic buildings. Hours of Operation: Tuesdays to Sundays 10am to 5pm. From 24 June to September daily 9.30am to 5pm Phone:Interpretation Centre: (418) 646 3167
