Château Frontenac - other view

Posted by Martine Lapointe (Québec, Canada) on 5 March 2007 in Architecture and Portfolio.

The Château Frontenac is one of the biggest and the most beautiful hotel in Québec City.The Château Frontenac was named in honour of Louis de Buade, Count of Frontenac, who was governor of the colony of New France from 1672 to 1682 and 1689 to 1698. The Château was built not too far from the historic Citadelle, whose construction Frontenac had begun at the end of the 17th century. The Quebec Conference of 1943, in which Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt discussed strategy for World War II, was held at the Citadelle while much of the staff stayed nearby in the Château Frontenac. (William Lyon Mackenzie King was invited to some meetings as a courtesy to Canada.) (source: Wikipedia)
