Perhaps no other city district in North America has so much history packed into such a small area as the Upper Town area of Quebec City. This was the original site of the city, established by Samuel de Champlain in the early 17th century. As the center of French power in the New World, it was the home of settlers, soldiers and governors, as well as the locus of so much bloodshed. More than four centuries later, Upper Town still retains much of the original feel of its origins - French colonialism. The streets and architecture evoke the history of the city, while the museums and historical sites document times past. Many visitors to Quebec take advantage of the wonderful small hotels in Haute-Ville, both for the ambiance of the district as well as the restaurants and shops.
