19 comments
Bienvenue a Quebec City! Here is a place that looks and feels like you are in Europe yet we are still in Canada. Quebec City is the capital of the Province of Quebec here in Canada and one of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Another popular City here in Quebec is Montreal but Quebec City is their seat of Provincial Government. The City is very french and historical with over 400 years of history. It is a fortified City located along the St. Lawrence River with an upper and lower sections connected by a Funicular. The port here is major stop among major Cruise Ships. One of the famous landmarks here is the luxurious Fairmont Chateau Frontenac located in the Upper Old Quebec This Hotel stands tall overlooking the St. Lawrence River. Quebec City is a walking City. In any season, it is perfect to walk around discovering the shops, the cafes and there is an alley displaying the works of art of local Quebecois artists. Come along here to discover more about the charm of Quebec City.

Quebec City is the capital of New France here in North America. 
We visited the Notre Dame De Quebec which is celebrating their 350th Jubilee. The Roman Catholic Church is the oldest in North America. Part of their Jubilee celebration is the opening of the Holy Door which is the only one in North America. There are six Holy Doors in the World - in Vatican City, 2 in Rome, in Ayr, France, Santiago de Compostela in Spain and here in Quebec City. Every Christian must Pass through the Holy Door to obtain forgiveness and graces. The Holy Door only opens every decade. So it is quite a blessing for us to pass through the Holy Door. 
After passing through the Holy Door, we entered the Chapel of the Sacred Heart which also have the relics of the saints and blessed of Canada.

Bon Weekend!
