QUÉBEC CITY: As "French" as it gets in the Americas!

OK, Québec City is its own place, and so it’s not really “French” and it’s not trying to be anything other than itself. Sure, Montréal may be the world’s second or third largest French-speaking city in the world after Paris, but in Montréal you’re never far from an English-speaker or an English-language conversation. In Québec City, anyone, including any Canadian from outside the province of Québec feels like they are in a foreign country. And the whole ambience of the place adds to the impression, including the beautiful architecture!

Let’s get started with a few photos of the city during a -25C, beautiful, crisp and sunny Winter day!

J'aime vos photos de la belle ville de Québec! C'est une ville vraiment unique au Canada et Amérique du Nord.

Lovely photos, aljuarez.

What can I say that hasn't already been said above by everyone else? And it is all true; it is wonderful little city that you will fall in love with. Completely unlike any other Canadian or American city.

Terrific pictures. The topography of QC allows for some unique and tremendous views.
