Photo Essay of Quebec City

I’ve been writing a lot lately about Quebec. This time, I’m going to let the photos speak for themselves in a photo essay of Quebec City. We did a lot of walking around Old Quebec, exploring the historic city streets. Many of these pictures really didn’t fit into any other article. I’ve divided them into Lower Town and Upper Town, so you can have an idea of what you’ll see in each of the two areas of Old Quebec. You’ll see many beautiful scenes filled with antique buildings, majestic statues, and brilliant fountains. Quebec City is just so charming. Often times, you’d never guess that this is actually a place in Canada, as it is so different in comparison to other Canadian cities. I hope that you enjoy these small glimpses of Quebec and it inspires you to travel there someday.

    Great photos once again – inspiring me to get to Quebec! I love how theyve set up the chairs as art in the middle of one of the city paths. Such a cool idea!

    I’d love to visit Uptown, the statues look so cool. I’m not an architecture nerd at all and I don’t know anything about it but the architecture in Quebec City looks so interesting! I’d love to walk around and see all the different buildings.

    Absolutely beautiful pictures and the city too. Wouldnt mind visiting but would just have to find out when the best time is to visit as I am not such a big fan of the cold and hash winters of Canada.

    I think the lower town just about edges it for me in terms of beauty – very close though! You’ve got some lovely shots there. I love the artwork on the side of that huge building in the lower town ๐Ÿ™‚

    Beautiful photos! I’ve been wanting to go to Canada for years! Montreal was always top of my list but Quebec is looking pretty good through these amazing shots! It might have to be bumped up to number 1! Great post guys!
