Terrasse Dufferin, Quebec City

A stroll along the wide boardwalk of Terrasse Dufferin brings to light the area's colonial cannons, the grand architecture of Chateaux Forntenac, and views of the St. Lawrence River. Artists and performers frequent this terrace in summer with entertainment, and it's a good place to find and souvenirs. Watch for a revealed archeological site that offers glimpses of the excavated remains of the fort beneath. Take the guesswork out of planning a Quebec City vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • You definitely have to walk on the terrace when you come to Quebec. You can make the journey to the race to train or very slowly to enjoy the view.

  • A pleasant area to stroll on a sunny afternoon overlooking the St Lawrence River. Also during the winter watching the people mostly kids slide down the chute. In all a pleasant relaxing walk.  more »
