  • What to visit in Quebec, is really beautiful I went in the summer and had a lot of flowers throughout the city, I would like to be specific, with more details of each of the places they visit, however I think that who go and visit will be agree with me than to do where you turn and go is beautiful. The only thing I can say is that everything that I could see of Quebec, churches and restaurants worth shopping, hotels. A place that you can not miss!. And great summer! the attention is very good although it speaks French almost all make an effort to speak English even Spanish.
