Quebec City's hard stone exterior protects a gorgeous core

Le 17 May 2018

There's an irony to the architecture of the oldest part of Quebec City, Canada.

On one level, it's a forbidding and formal place, dominated by stone hard structures, battle-ready ramparts, and imperious castles. Every structure seems to scream, "stay out!," befitting a city that, for a significant period, functioned as one of the most impenetrable fortresses in North America. It remains the last walled city north of Mexico.
