La Promenade des Gouverneurs is a part of the Dufferin Terrace overlooking the St Lawrence and running beside the Chateau Frontenac. There are plaques describing the history and people which is fascinating. The views are amazing.

Area was very clean. One could view the river as they were walking. It was also interesting to look down into the viewing areas.
