The Dufferin Terrace overlooks the St. Lawrence River right by the Château Frontenac. This terrace was built in 1838, next to the Saint-Louis Fort, which Champlain erected at the top of the cliff. Nowadays, you can admire the remnants of this first fort, revealed by archaeologists. The terrace owes its name to Lord Dufferin, the governor of Canada from 1872 to 1878. He is one of the few people who fought against the demolition of the fortifications, which we can still admire nowadays all around the city.
