I set off on foot with a single camera and tripod to try and find the essence of Old Quebec. This structure proudly revaled itself at most every turn. Suddenly the sky was the perfect blue for framing its imposing presence.
The iconic structure of Upper Town, indeed of all Quebec City, is the castle-like Château Frontenac. The grand hotel was built by the Canadian Pacific railroad at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries and has dominated the city’s skyline ever since. But Château Frontenac remains a relative newcomer in an architecturally rich ville where many museums, churches, homes, and scenic lanes date back to the 1600s.
