Fun Fact

Old Quebec’s 400-year old ramparts, arched stone gates, and fortifications make this the oldest (and only) walled city in North America. Built by the French and re-fortified by the British after their victory, the fortification wall is designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and a National Historic Site of Canada.
