Captured during my visit to Quebec City on the 400th foundation (1608-2008) anniversary, from the Terrace, which faces the St-Lawrence river.

What better landmark than a castle-hotel for a city known for its elegance, slice of European charm, art and culture. Some liken the Chateau Frontenac to the heart of Quebec City.

Situated on the cliff of Cap-aux-Diamants, the Chateau overlooks the vast expanse of the St. Laurent River that glistens in the soft light of dawn and dusk.
Its quiet magnificence, elegance and pristine locale has made this UNESCO World Heritage Site a paradise for shutter bugs earning it the title of the “most photographed hotel in the world” in the Guinness World Records. ref:âteau-frontenac-quebec

    Beautiful, brings back wonderful memories. Is the board walk still there? Haven’t been there since the sixties. Still in awe of this beautiful city.

  • Thank you very much for your wonderful comment and fav :) Yes the boardwalk is still there, it is part of the history, they cannot get rid of it also it is along the cliff. Yes it is such a picturesque city and a delight for photographers. All the best :)
