Founded in 1608, Québec is the cradle of French America and the oldest walled port city in North America. Therefore, UNESCO has designated it as a World Heritage Site. City of history and power, Québec is on the list of 20 most popular destinations in the world for safety and quality of life.

A French-speaking city with European charm and tinged with Amerindian, French and British influences, Québec boasts new colors with the seasons. Summer or winter, it charms as much for its cultural vitality as by its natural assets. With a population of half a million people, Québec has a great cultural and artistic vitality and a vibrant nightlife. In addition to its bars, cafes, bistros, museums, theaters and cinemas, Québec hosts several festivals, including three which are very large: the Summer Festival, the Festival of New France and its famous Carnival winter.

Located on the banks of the St. Lawrence River and natural citadel perched atop Cap Diamant, Québec City has a majestic beauty. It is also a city tailor-made for sportsmen and nature lovers. Dotted with large green spaces, it has one of the largest urban parks in the world, the Plains of Abraham, which are spread over 108 hectares. Only thirty minutes from downtown, the mountains, rivers, and lakes that surround it are invitations to engage in outdoor activities.
