Se hva du kan gjøre og oppleve i Quebec City

It all started in 1535, when Jacques Cartier landed here, and the first trading port was created in what is now Quebec. Since then, the city had become the province's capital and a destination popular for its sights, architecture and food. Visit the famous Chateau Frontenac, the world's most photographed hotel, or one of the other 36 national historic sites, each a sight to behold in its own right. But walking through the Old Port or the Plains of Abraham is perhaps the best way to feel and breathe in the historical atmosphere of the city.
