Chateau Frontenac

The Chateau Frontenac was the first building in Quebec City, created in 1524 by Samuel Champlain. It originally had only 2 rooms, but has grown to more than 500. The cannons on the lawn date back to an attack by New Sweden in the 19th century. Each year, the Marquis de Frontenac throws the Carnaval as a gift to Quebec's citizens.
