The fortifications surrounding Old Québec are close to 4.6 km in length. Take a guided tour along the walls and experience three centuries of Québec City's history as you admire the old town's distinctive cityscapes. You will thus better understand the defence system of North America's only remaining fortified city. Tours begin at the Frontenac kiosk on Dufferin Terrace. Continue your visit at Artillery Park where you will be charmed by the unique building interiors. 2017 marks the 150th anniversary of Confederation. As a gift, Canada will offer free admission throughout the Parks Canada network on presentation of the National Discovery Passes, available at parkscanada.gc.ca.
