Historical Note 2
Did you know that… Old Québec City is #1 Canadian touristic destination?


Like Boston in New England, U.S.A., Quebec City has been a major tourist destination for years. In fact, only in the past 4 years before COVID-19 (2016-2019), Travel & Leisure magazine readers voted for Quebec City as Canada’s “Best destination”, after being ranked within the top 3 Canadian destinations for years. With its European feel, Quebec City, the largest French-speaking capital of continental Americas, is a must-see North American destination.





Historical Note 3
Did you know that… one can find 2 large scale models of the fortress of Québec in Old Québec?


The most recent was made in the 1960s by Anthony Price – founder of Musée du Fort – showing the fortress of Québec around 1750, a decade before the fall of New France. Since 1965, the Price model is part of the Musée’s sound and light show, highlighting the 6 military sieges that shaped Québec during the colonial period. On the other hand, the By and Duberger model has been displayed at Québec’s Artillery park since 1981. It was built between 1806 and 1808 before being shipped to the Royal Military Academy in Woolwich England until its return to Ottawa Canada in 1908.  What was the purpose of this 900 sq.ft. model?
