Quebec is the only North American city to preserve its colonial ramparts. The defensive walls, along with bastions and gates, still surround Upper Town. Samuel de Champlain, a French explorer, founded the city in the 17th century, and it served as the capital of New France until 1760 when it briefly came under British colonial control before Canada gained its independence. The bustling urban ensemble is a lasting reminder of the struggle over colonial control of the Americas.
