The town grew up around the Saint-Remy citadel, which was built in the 14th century to guard the heartlands of the Guedian Kingdom against attacks by ships sailing up the Frontenac river. The complex, incorporating a castle keep and a riverside fortress, is a national heritage site. Saint-Remy's economy is built upon banking, aircraft manufacturing, and tourism. About a million visitors also brave the cold every January to participate in the city's famous Winter Festival.
The city is noted for its parks and gardens and its historic and well-preserved architecture, drawing visitors to the medieval-era cathedrals and buildings which exist in the city, such as the Chateau Frontenac (pictured). Portions of the city walls, dating to the 15th century, are still standing and are among the only examples of this in Kelssek. The banks of the Suter river are today a thriving café and bar district, especially popular in the spring and early summer.
