Some pictures of the Old Quebec

Each year, my wife and I take one day to walk through the streets of the lower town of Quebec city also known as the "Old Quebec". We took some pictures for you to look at. Enjoy! (Just click on the picture below to open the pictures galery)

Beautiful photos! I haven't been there in several years. When we lived in Ontario and would travel home to Nova Scotia each summer, Old Quebec was a regular stop on our journey. I've been to that Christmas shop and yes, it would be great if they could open a year-round Halloween shop nearby :)

I have three questions:

1. What are your summers like?
2. What are your winters like?
3. Do you have a decent goth community?

Why do I ask these questions? Because those pictures are AMAZING and I think I need to move there!

Hi Dracenea, here's the answer to your questions:

1. Summers are usually rainy and cold in June, rainy and humid in July. Sunny and hot in August and September. Temperature vary from 59 to 86. Most of the time it is around 68F.

2. The temperature in winter vary between 32F to -31F. Most of the time it is around 5F. We have snow from mid-December to early April.

3. Good question, there is probably a goth community in Quebec city, I would be surprised if it is not the case. What I am sure though is that their is certainly a decent goth community in Montreal city. They even have gothic clothes shop there. One of the most renowned is Cruella. Montréal also have and older part. Searching "Vieux Montréal" in Google Images will give you some pictures.

Quebec City is a very windy city because of the proximity of the Saint Lawrence River. The old part of the city is very beautiful. I would probably love living there but I like too much the tranquility my small city to leave it for a larger, more crowded one.

Thanks for stopping by Jaz. I just took a look at your blog. You have quite a large collection of witches. Very impressive. I just joined your blog too, the more blogger I read about Halloween the better I feel.

Have a nice weekend!

Oh wow, Quebec is beautiful. We have precious few older buildings here since we're a younger country and then a lot of them got destroyed during the Civil War. Wonderful photos, I love history and architecture!
