The name "Quebec" originates from the Algonquin word Kebec, that translates to "where the river narrows." This term refers specifically to the narrowing of the Saint Lawrence River on the city's promontory. The promontory is Cap-Diamant and Levis on the opposite bank from Quebec. Samuel de Champlain founded the city during the year 1608, making it amongst the oldest cities within North America. The only fortified city walls which still exist in the Americas north of Mexico, are the ramparts surrounding Old Quebec or Vieux-Quebec. These walls were declared in 1985 as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO as the "Historic District of Old Quebec."

Quebec is the city's official name in both French and English, based on the federal and provincial governments, even though Quebec City is normally utilized, mostly to distinguish the province from the city. The Chateau Frontenac is the most well-known attraction in the city and is a hotel which dominates the skyline. The National Gallery of Quebec of the Musee national des beaux-arts du Quebec and the Museum of Civilization or the Musee de la civilization are both found near Vieux-Quebec.
