In 1985, Quebec City's historic district became the first urban ensemble in North America to be declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. With its spectacular cliff-top location overlooking the St. Lawrence river, its fortifications, narrow winding streets and wealth of historic buildings spanning four centuries, Quebec is unlike any other city on the continent.
In this fascinating guide, Quebec's dramatic history is placed in an international context and in-depth information is combined with exceptional photographs to reveal the meaning and beauty of each site. An outline of the history of every major location is followed by a step-by-step visual exploration in which general exterior and interior views are followed by photographs of selected objects, symbols and architectural elements.
