Quebec <<kwih BEHK>> is the capital of the province of Quebec in Canada. It is the oldest city in Canada. Quebec lies where the Saint Charles River flows into the Saint Lawrence River. It became the capital of the province in 1867.
Quebec is a walled city. However, most of this beautiful city lies outside the walls today. Quebec has many churches, old stone houses, and narrow cobblestone streets. A historic fort called the Citadel is Quebec’s most famous place. It stands on a high point overlooking the city.
Most of Quebec’s people are French Canadians. As a result, signs in the city are in French. Some are also in English.
