Best luxury hotels in Quebec 2022

The francophone heritage of this province sets it apart from the vast majority of the continent on which it is located. Indeed, French is the main language here, with much of the population bilingual. Recognized for its close ties to the arts, this is the region that brought us Cirque du Soleil and Celine Dion. Quebec City, founded in 1608 on the St. Lawrence River, holds much of its French colonial history. With a fortified core, it is the only fortified city in North America and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Now it’s complemented by chic boutiques, bustling cafes and restaurants, making it an even bigger draw for tourists soaking up the European vibe.
