'''Quebec''' ( to the southwest.

The narrowing of the Saint Lawrence River proximate to the city's promontory, Cap-Diamant (Cape Diamond), and Lévis (Lévis, Quebec), on the opposite bank, provided the name given to the city, ''Kébec'', an Algonquin (Algonquin language) word meaning "where the river narrows". Founded in 1608 by Samuel de Champlain, Quebec City is one of the oldest cities (List of North American cities by year of foundation) in North America. The ramparts (Ramparts of Quebec City) surrounding Old Quebec (''Vieux-Québec'') are the only fortified city walls remaining in the Americas north of Mexico, and were declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) in 1985 as the 'Historic District of Old Québec'. "Historic District of Old Québec". World Heritage (World Heritage Site); UNESCO. Retrieved January 12, 2009.

According to the federal (Government of Canada) and provincial government (Politics of Quebec#Government of Quebec)s, ''Québec'' is the city's official name in both French (Quebec French) and English (Canadian English), although ''Quebec City'' (or its French equivalent, ''Ville de Québec'') is commonly used, particularly to distinguish the city from the province. The city's famous landmarks include the Château Frontenac, a hotel which dominates the skyline, and La Citadelle, an intact fortress that forms the centre-piece of the ramparts surrounding the old city. The National Assembly of Quebec (provincial legislature), the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (''National Museum of Fine Arts of Quebec''), and the Musée de la civilisation (''Museum of Civilization'') are found within or near Vieux-Québec.
