    adding "the" into sentence

    My first impression of Quebec was that the whole province felt elegant and beautiful with well-preserved European period architecture.

    Hi,

    I was wondering if I could add "the" in front of "well-preserved", in the hopes that, by doing so, I could single out the existence of "well-preserved European period architecture" in Quebec.

    Is that possible?

    You could use 'the' in that way. 'Its' would be more transparent, in my opinion.
