Winner of the photo album contest of the month May 2011

  Start slide show:
album of the month contest "A coherent and well preserved urban ensemble, the Historic District of Old Québec is an exceptional example of a fortified colonial town and by far the most complete north of Mexico. Québec, the former capital of New France, illustrates one of the major stages in the European settlement of the cololonisation of the Americas by the Europeans." - a quote from the UNESCO's justification to inscribe Quebec's old town as a World Heritage Site. I could relate to that, entirely. The architecture was unmistakably French. Narrow alleys, small stone town houses with coloured window frames. And the citadel! A complete fortress with ramparts and barracks. What an incredible place indeed. Some restaurants and cafes put their tables in the pavement, taking advantage of impossibly sunny day. They were packed! This was just the upper old town. The lower old town was even more picturesque than the upper part! It felt yet more French. The little stone houses had wooden window shutters! There was a little square with a church and a petite statue of Louis XIV! So cute!
