Founded in 1608 by Samuel de Champlain when he constructed a fort on Cap Diamant, Québec is located in lands that belonged to Algonquin and Iroquoian Native Americans. In fact, Québec gets its name from the Algonquin language and means, “where the river narrows.” Capital of the province of Québec – the largest in Canada – Québec City was also once capital of New France at large. As such an important cultural center that continued to expand throughout the years, French and British colonial forces fought over the region somewhat frequently, resulting in it changing hands. Evidence of these alternatingly dominant European cultures can be spotted throughout as we continue to explore what Québec City has to offer.
