The Dufferin Terrace in Quebec City is a well known tourist attraction. Named after Lord Dufferin, who was Governor of Canada from 1872 to 1878, it was built in 1838. From there, people have a breathtaking view of the Saint-Lawrence River, of the Île d’Orléans, and of the Traverse Québec-Lévis. The Château Frontenac is adjacent to it.
