Château Frontenac, Terrase Dufferin and the Funicular
The Château Frontenac is located in the Upper City, in Old Québec. "The most photographed hotel in the world", it dominates Cap Diamant and extends along Terrasse Dufferin.
Terrasse Dufferin is comprised of a long wood promenade overlooking the St. Lawrence River, the South Shore and Île d’Orléans. A number of canons stand as a reminder of Old Québec’s historically strategic position.
A funicular facing the Château and adjacent to Terrasse Dufferin links the Old Port and le Petit Champlain quarter to the Upper City.
