Old Quebec (French: Vieux-Québec) is the oldest neighbourhood in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. There are two parts: the Upper Town (French: Haute-Ville) and the Lower Town (French: Basse-Ville). It has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985. People often call Old Quebec the Old City in English.[1] In French, it is often called the Latin Quarter (French: Quartier latin).
