The first urban centre of North America to be ranked on the Unesco World Heritage List, the "Old Capital" of Quebec cannot fail but delight by its remarkable site, elegant houses, fortified ramparts and its distinctive French flavour. Beyond its walls, Quebec is however a modern city that doesn't look its 400 years. Skyscrapers, trendy suburbs, a lively economy as well as an industrial and port centre: the other face of Champlain's city should not be missed.
