We almost missed this free historical site that is underground. It is right by the funicular and the Frontenac hotel on the Terrasse Dufferin (the boardwalk). There are stairs that lead you down to this unbelievable fort that is underground. It is open (when I...More

This venue was included in the Parks Canada pass, so we got in for free. That said, it would have been well worth paying for. Located directly under the Terrasse Dufferin, this archaeological site enables you to explore the ruins of the original fort and...More
