Terrasse Pierre-Dugua-de Mons
Terrasse Pierre-Dugua-de Mons, at the end of popular Rue St. Denis, is a welcome oasis (it's part of the larger Champs-de-Bataille park). The green space has views of the ever-magnificent Chateau Frontenac, as well as the Dufferin Terrace and the city of Levis (a picturesque destination on the south shore of the St. Lawrence). It's a relaxing, grassy stopping point and is a nod to the city's history—it's named after French merchant and colonizer Pierre Dugua. Dugua is the one who gave the order for Samuel de Champlain to found a French trading point, better known today as Quebec City.
