The Château Frontenac, in the center of Québec, is one of the most famous monuments in the city. It was built between the late nineteenth and early twentieth century by architect Bruce Price for the Canadian company of the railways Canadian Pacific Railways and is one of the Canadian Pacific Hotels. Price used medieval and Renaissance architectural elements inspired in particular by the castles of France and Scotland. Today the castle is one of the most exclusive hotels in Canada, with 600 rooms on 18 floors. Cousin of the Chateau Lac Louis on the shores of Lac Louis in Alberta, its name derives from that of the Governor of the Colony of New France, Louis de Buade Comte de Frontenac and de Palluau (1662-1698).
