This class trip for Ursuline Academy will be like no other! Quebec City, also known as Ville de Québec in French, is the capital city of Canada’s Quebec province. Its 2016 population of 531,902 makes it Quebec’s second most populous city (Montreal is the largest) and the eleventh most populous city in Canada. The city is known for its location on the Saint Lawrence River as well as its historic Old Quebec which features fortified city walls. These walls are the only ones left in northern North America and as such, they were made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985 under the name Historic District of Old Quebec.
Quebec City, like most of the province of Quebec, is a predominantly French-speaking city. It is also known for its architecture, European feel, and various annual festivals. One of the most popular is the Winter Carnival which has skiing, ice sculptures, and an ice castle.
