Chateau Frontenac

One of the 'main attractions' in Quebec city is the Chateau Frontenac, an unmistakable feature inside the walls of Vieux Quebec. Opening in 1893 it was a part of the CPR's chain of majestic hotels to promote 'luxurious tourism' to its wealthy customers. Today, still a luxury hotel, it is a part of the Fairmont Hotel family. The walkway seen in the second image as well as the hotel is ideally situated within Vieux Quebec on the edge of the cliff, overlooking the St. Lawrence river (not seen to the right) and the lower parts of Vieux Quebec not within the walls.
