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.
