Historic District of Old Québec, Canada

Quebec was founded by the French explorer Champlain in the early 17th century. It is the only North American cito to have preserved its ramparts, together with the munerous bastions, gates and defensive works which still surround Old Quebec. The Upper Town, bult on the cliff, has remained the religious and administrative centre, with its churches, convents and other monuments like the Dauphine Redoubt, the Citadel and Chateau Frontenac. Together with the Lower Town and its ancient districts, it forms an urban ensemble which is one of the best examples of a fortified colonial city. UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985.
Thank you very much Ange for nice postcard and lovely stamps!
