Your guide to Within the Walls of Old Québec
Québec City includes the only walled city in North America. When you pass through one of the gate ways you are in the original old town (Vieux Québec or Old Québec) which was established 400 years ago and to this day has preserved all of its charm. www.withinthewalls.com lists hotels and B&B’s along with unbiased comments from visitors to the hotels that are within the original Old Québec.
Why should you use “Within The Walls”
Gateways and 18th century walls surround the heart of Québec City. These walls that protected the original city now house a functioning quarter where people live and work. 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 walls. Many travel web sites that refer to “Old Québec” also include hotels that are outside of the walls . For example, Expedia divides Québec City into three categories: Old Québec, Lower Town and Upper Town. We want you to explore the original historic city. We moderate the comments, keeping the site informative and hype-free. Note: This is not a reservation or enquiry web site. For information or bookings go to the hotel’s web site.
