History, which is everywhere in the city, is most evident in its beautifully preserved fortifications that date from the early 17th Century. As the only remaining walled city in North America, Quebec has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors are free to walk along the nearly 5 kilometers (3.10 miles) of walls witnessing the Fortifications of Quebec National Historic Site. The interpretation centre offers an intriguing look into the military and architectural design features. Guided walking tours offer further insights.
