Quebec City, Canada Cruise Port

A truly unique location which cruisers travelling the North American continent are sure to find intriguing, Quebec is one of the finest cities in Canada, not least because of its storied history and rich cultural heritage.

This stunning township is the only city in North America to still have its original city walls, a result of a rigorous campaign to preserve its colonial beauty- which to the delight of its visitors, has thoroughly succeeded. The city was the fortress capital of New France in the 16th century, meaning that many of the buildings are superb examples of classical European architecture, from the rustic cobbled streets at the very centre, to stunning complexes like Chateau Frontenac.

Sightseeing in Quebec

Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec

Anyone who is interested in the history and culture of Quebec will be compelled to spend hours at a time within this beautiful museum, which is easily the finest in the region. The range of paintings alone will have art lovers in raptures, as the museum is home to permanent exhibitions featuring the works of Jean Paul Lemieux and Jean-Paul Riopelle, French colonial masters whose works are still breathtakingly beautiful. As well as these gorgeous highlights, make sure to visit the Brousseau Inuit Art Collection, which is home to 2639 pieces created over the span of 50 years.

 Cathedral of the Holy Trinity

Originally built between 1800 and 1804, this glorious cathedral was the first Anglican Church to be built outside the British Isles, and its historical significance still rings astoundingly true today. The interior is decorated with stunning features that are as beautiful as they are intriguing. With the construction of the church completed, King George III sent the parish a treasure trove of silver and gold pieces include candle sticks, chalices, and ornate silver brackets. These can still be seen today, proudly displayed within the classical splendour of the church vault, making it a rare cultural hotspot for cruisers.
