Your guide to Within the Walls of Old Quebec and Lower Town
Quebec City is the only walled city in North America. Within the gates, the original old town (Vieux Quebec or Old Quebec) was established 400 years ago and to this day has preserved all of its charm.
18th century walls surround the heart of Quebec City, these walls that protected the original city now house a functioning quarter where people live and work. Authentic horse drawn carriages, sonorous church bells, winding cobblestone streets and ancient pitched roofs built, hundreds of years ago, contrast sharply with the bustling modern city outside the old walls.
