It is Canadian... so it looks Canadian - in spite of your stereotype.

Definitely one of the most beautiful cities in Canada, North America for that matter.

@ drowningman666 - What do you usually think Canadian cities look like? Our cities are very diverse. If you look at Toronto and compare it to say, Vancouver or St. John's, they look totally different.

Quebec City is unique, historic, and very quaint. IMO, the most beautiful historic city in North America.

Great pictures! Have you shown these yet? I don't remember if I saw them. In any case, while I like seeing all of your pictures, it's always nice to see your view on the better cities.

I didn't mean to offend anyone, just when I think about Canada or USA I see rather modern architecture, full of tall buildinings and wires hanging everywhere. But Quebec City has a lot of historical buildings and it's tidy, so I thought it looks more european than american

Fabulous!!!!! I lived there over the summer in 2006 and loved it. I also went to UQAC in order to learn French. Didn't have much luck with that though. lol

Don't worry, I wasn't offended. Quebec probably is the most 'European' city of any other in North America.

the historic centre is very eurocentered, but outside of it, looks like any other North american city. Still doesn't take away that Quebec is indeed one of the most fascinating cities in NA
