Fortifications of Québec National Historic Site

Natural Wonders & Cultural Treasures

The Fortifications of Québec National Historic Site is part of the network of historic sites managed by Parks Canada. Its main role is to ensure the protection and development of the walls and gates of the city (Québec, Canada), the Governors' Garden and Montmorency Park as well as other important places such as Dufferin Terrace and the Governors' walkway.

Stretching over 4.6 km, the walls and ramparts bear witness to the evolution of Québec's defensive system from the 17th to the 19th century.
