Return to Québec: A Purple Tramp photo essay

quebec city hall

In the picturesque ville of Québec, the annual Festival d'Été takes place in July.  It's an opportunity to escape the 21st century and soak up the vieux of a fascinating old town and its cobblestone alleyways, charming shops, many verdant parks and sidewalk cafes. The festival features an international cast of rock, pop, jazz and classical artists in performances on stages set amid the city's inspiring architectural marvels, such as the magnificent Château Frontenac Hotel, Holy Trinity cathedral and protective fortifications dating back to the 17th century.
