We just returned from a relaxing vacation in Quebec, Canada. It’s a beautiful, charming and very old city. And, they speak French! It’s built on a cliff-side overlooking the St Laurence River. So we walked from Basse-Ville (Lower Town where our hotel was) to Haute-Ville (inside the walls) several times a day. I feel like I have dancer calves after only a week of walking!
Because the city is over 400 years old, the architecture is magnificent.
All the old buildings in Lower Town have been preserved. Most have been re-purposed into boutiques and restaurants with housing on the second and third floors.
Even the roof lines are interesting. I was in design heaven!
