Close by, the tour continues to the Château Frontenac and its Dufferin Terrasse, a magnificent boardwalk overlooking the St. Lawrence River and offering a breathtaking view. Then is the Seminary of Québec, founded in 1663. Now occupied by the Architecture School of Laval University, this institution is a remarkable collection of buildings erected around enclosed courtyards. Following is the spectacular interior of the Notre-Dame-de-Québec Basilica-Cathedral. Then continuing to the Lower Town, finding ourselves in the middle of Place Royale where Samuel de Champlain founded Québec in 1608. Discover the restored houses of merchant families from the New France era. Let’s wander into cobblestone streets and historic houses and take a peek at the Royal Battery facing the river for the defense of the city.
