Description

The Fortifications of Québec National Historic Site commemorates the defence system developed between 1608 and 1871 in Québec City, Canada's main stronghold during the colonial period.

This site invites you to discover the rich military history of Québec, the only remaining fortified city north of Mexico, a distinction that has led to its recognition as a UNESCO World Heritage City.
