Quebec City is the capital of the Canadian province of Quebec. Quebec City's Old Town is the only North American fortified city north of Mexico whose walls still exist, and was declared a World Heritage Site in 1985 as the "Historic District of Old Quebec". It is also one of the oldest cities in North America (founded in 1608). Traffic inside the walls is restricted making it friendlier place for pedestrians.

One of my favourite places. You have captured the essence of this place with its fine stone architecture that is accented by the flowers.

The pure colours against the neutral coloured stone walls make this picture pop. Truly charming.
