Quebec City, One of the Most Photogenic City in North America

Many will say I might be biased to make this statement as I was born in Quebec City, and it does sound like a justified comment. But anyone who has visited the beautiful old town of Quebec City will testify of the beauty of its “New France” architecture and the European feel that its Fortified walls and narrow streets give. It has been 3 years that I haven’t been to my home Country while circling the worlds most beautiful cities, and every time I come back to Quebec I am always blown away by its beauty.

Even though I have studied for years in the Old Quebec at high school at the Petit Seminaire de Quebec, the oldest French speaking seminary in the Americas, whenever I am back in the city, I try to put myself in the skin of a tourist and visit some corners of my beloved city as if I was a First comer or a tourist.

This year, as it is the 150th anniversary of Canada, Park Canada (a Federal organization) is providing free entrance to all its parks around the country. So I have enjoyed the opportunity to visit some of Quebec’s Parks that most locals, including myself, have never seen… The Museum of the fortified walls in the Old Quebec is just amazing, having a scale model of the city around the 17th century.

Another interesting place to visit was the Fort of Levis, on the south shore of Quebec City, A fort built by the British to protect from the Americans in the event they would invade Canada (as they had already done in 1775)… At the time, it was an engineering masterpiece as it used advanced construction methods.

Moral of the story: as a resident of a city, we rarely see the highlights of our own city, which are usually “tourist stuff”. I highly recommend you visit your local tourist information and see how you can visit your home town and discover areas you have never seen before.
