Quebec City Travel Guide

The name "Quebec ", which comes from an Algonquin word meaning "Where the river narrows", originally referred to the area around Quebec City, where the Saint Lawrence River narrows to a cliff-lined gap.

The Québec region is of unequalled historical and cultural heritage interest, with its architecture, pedestrian streets and fortifications, unique in North America. A visit to the Plains of Abraham and Vieux-Québec (Old Québec), a UNESCO World Heritage travel destination, will provide the visitor with almost 400 years of historical discovery opportunity.

Local attractions include the Quartier Petit Champlain, a great shopping experience with one-of-a-kind boutiques and bistros in a romantic european atmosphere. Or wander through the streets of Vieux-Québec with its handicraft stands, renowned fashion designer boutiques, art galleries and gourmet food stores. Quebec City offers a gastronomic diversity of over a thousand restaurants, which will give you a taste of Quebecois conviviality. From maple products served in sugar shack conditions to fantastic meals savored in an XVIIIth-century ambiance, the Québec City region is a veritable gourmet route!

Québec’s founding religious community held tremendous influence over the region’s development. The most popular of these sites remains the Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré Shrine, home to the annual Sainte Anne Novena. The experience is a deeply moving and spiritual one for the 100000 pilgrims, who gather here from all over the world in the hopes that their prayers will find a kind ear in the good Sainte Anne.
