Quebec City has long history
from Republican Herald
One of the oldest cities in North America and the only walled city north of Mexico, Quebec City is located on the Saint Lawrence River. The city's name Kébec (Quebec) is an Algonquin word meaning "where the river narrows." Quebec's old city was the first UNESCO World Heritage Site in North America. The reverence to the city's religious roots cannot be denied when visiting the Roman Catholic basilica, Notre Dame du Quebec, the seat of the local archdiocese. It was designed by Jean Baillairge and his son Francoise, who revisited the architectural project that began in 1633 and gave the basilica a decidedly Neo-Classical feel.
