Canada: Old City of Qubec

Bounded by fortifications dating to the 17th century, Old Quebec is rich in historic landmarks and museums. Upper Town contains the 1800s Citadelle fort, the grand Ch√Ęteau Frontenac hotel and Terrasse Dufferin, a wide boardwalk overlooking the city. A funicular connects to Lower Town and the Quartier Petit Champlain, with a 1688 stone church, Place Royale square and charming boutiques on Rue du Petit Champlain.

Thanks to Ms Charolette.  On the bottom left is a stamp from set of 10 on Far and Wide series issued in 2020. The stamp shows Herschel Island-Qitiqtaruk Territorial Park, Yukon. On the right is a stamp of John Turner who was 17th Prime Minister of Canada. In the center is a Canadian definitive featuring QEII.
