Chateau Frontenac, an iconic symbol for over a century
Château Frontenac, the world’s most photographed hotel, has stood overlooking the St. Lawrence River and Dufferin Terrace for over 100 years. Perched atop the headland, the landmark establishment has become a veritable icon of the Old City. Construction of the hotel began in 1892. Since then, it has been expanded several times, including in 1924, when a central turret was added, and again in 1926 after fire destroyed part of the building.
No matter where you stand on Dufferin Terrace, you’re rewarded with breathtaking views: the icebound St. Lawrence, Ile d’Orléans all frosted with snow, and the city of Lévis and Quebec City’s Lower Town beneath their mantel of white. The 671-metre-long wooden boardwalk is a popular year-round gathering place—and the perfect spot for snapping some pictures.
A little square with a whole lot of history
The site of the first permanent French settlement in North America, Place Royale is steeped in history. It was here that Samuel de Champlain chose to erect his “Abitation,” which served as a fort, storehouse, trading post, and residence after his arrival in 1608. Place Royale is also home to Notre-Dame-des-Victoires, the oldest stone church in North America, built in 1688. With its enchanting surroundings, the square feels like a real-life time capsule!
Shop, Boutiques, Restaurants and Cafe's Await
