Quebec Tourism & Visitor Guide
Welcome to Quebec!Québec is a province steeped in tradition and history. It is a former French colony that has managed to retain, and build upon, its strong links to French history, lifestyle and culture. Shopfronts and street signs inform passersbys in French first and English second, giving the province a European flair uncommon to the rest of North America. Quebec City—or Ville de Québec—is the capital and remains the only North American city still fortified by its original city walls. Visitors to the city can't miss the Chateau Frontenac, a historic hotel that dominates the city's skyline. Montréal is Canada's second largest city and plays host to an assortment of international events and festivals. The city is also world-renowned for its nightlife and literary scene. Québec has much to offer visitors besides its two largest cities. Both the Laurentian Mountains and the Saguenay Region offer a variety of adventures—especially for winter sports. Or visit the spectacular Gaspé Peninsula in the South St. Lawrence area and enjoy fresh maple tapped directly from local tress.
With its collection of 21,000 plant species and cultivars, 10 exhibition greenhouses, some thirty thematic gardens, and teams of researchers and activities staff, the Montréal Botanical Garden ranks as one of the world's largest and most spectacular botanical gardens.
